Jamie Dornan

I have grown up knowing all about the wonderful work of TinyLife as my father, Professor Jim Dornan was a founding member of the organisation, back when it was known as NIMBA. Now, as a new dad myself, I am inspired by the incredible work of this local charity.

From humble beginnings, the charity has grown into a diverse organisation offering a range of complimentary services all whilst still maintaining its roots in vital medical research. Since its inception in 1988, TinyLife has supported a number of invaluable research projects including the development of surfactant (a wonder drug that allows premature baby’s lungs to work effectively) which is now making a difference to premature babies being born worldwide. I am extremely passionate about the work of TinyLife and that is why I am delighted to be a patron.
