I am responsible for coordinating and communicating immunology-related research across the Medical Sciences Division. Immunology research encompasses a wide range of subjects including the defence against infection, inflammatory diseases, cancer, therapeutics, and many others. Similarly, researchers are spread across a number of sites and departments within the University. The Immunology@Oxford Network aims to provide an inclusive, open environment to promote the sharing of ideas, expertise and resources. Alongside organising the I@O Network I also facilitate collaborations, identify funding opportunities and support research innovation.
Prior to starting this role I worked as a post-doctoral scientist at the University of Oxford for twelve years, initially at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine using biochemical assays to understand more about the cancer-predisposition disorder Bloom’s Syndrome, and subsequently at the Structural Genomics Consortium where I used cell-based assays to validate potential drug-like molecules in the treatment of the rare bone disease Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva (FOP), also known as Stone Man Syndrome.
