NIHR Clinical Lecturer in HPB and Transplantation Surgery & Honorary Specialty Registrar (General Surgery)
• Immunology (adaptive immune responses, innate lymphocytes, sterile inflammation)
• Hepatic inflammation (Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury, Paracetamol-Induced Liver Injury, Concanavalin A hepatitis)
• Therapeutic targeting of Immune pathways
• Vascular Access Surgery
• Clinical Transplantation (liver, kidney, pancreas, tissue)
• Medical Devices
I also have a significant interest in the delivery, assessment and organisation of both undergraduate and postgraduate medical education, which has been recognised by a number of local and regional awards. This experience has been gathered at various medical schools [Cambridge, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Glasgow, Queensland], as well as in the postgraduate setting across several postgraduate deaneries.
