Research overview

I spent my undergraduate years at UCL studying Human Genetics and went onto Imperial College London as a postgraduate and postdoctorial scientist (Biochemistry building, Sir Alexander Fleming building, Charing Cross Hospital and the MRC clinical Sciences Centre).

I am now a Facility Manager and the BLS Laboratory Health and Safety Officer.

Research Interests

Prior to coming to Lancaster my research interests were involved in the molecular biology aspects of human disease. Firstly in identifying genes subjected to methylation via the process of genetic imprinting in Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome and trying to understand the mechanism in women who have familial recurrant hydatidiform mole. Secondly I have worked on vision, specifically trying to understand the mechanisms of how inherited mutations affect genes function and how functionality can be preserved in affected cells via neuroprotection delivered by stem cell therapy.

Current Research

I have downed my pipettors permanently now.
