Reader in Molecular Biology

I have been teaching at the University since 2002. I recently took up the post of Programme Leader for BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science. My other duties include being the Faculty Biological Safety Officer. 

Teaching and supervision

I teach primarily on BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science but also contribute to teaching on BSc (Hons) Biopharmaceutical Science and various masters programmes. The focus of my teaching is cell and molecular biology across a range of modules.

Research interests for potential research students

I am interested in research projects in the area of transplantation and basic cell biology, in particular those with a strong molecular biology component.

Research

My PhD was part of an EU/Japanese project to sequence the genome of Bacillus subtilis followed by a post-doctoral position at Newcastle University working on functional analysis of the B. subtilis genome.

This was then followed by a post-doctoral position working in the area of inflammation conducting research on chemokine/glycosaminoglycan interactions, before taking up a lectureship at the University of Sunderland in 2002.

The main focus of my research centres around increasing the available donor pool for organ transplantation by improving the outcome of organs from donors which previously have been declined for use. This work is in collaboration with Prof. David Talbot, consultant transplant surgeon, at the Freeman Hospital.

My other areas of research include proteomic analysis of the orphan disease cystinosis. I currently have PhD students working on projects investigating mechanisms that regulate cell proliferation and protein drug interactions.
