Projects per year
After graduating with a degree in Sport Science, I became a HCPC-registered BMS in haematology, before moving into research. I have three decades of research experience, including projects examining neutrophil interactions with platelets, the anti-inflammatory properties of APC in severe sepsis and gained a PhD investigating angiogenesis and signalling in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia.
Since joining the University of the Highlands and Islands, I have developed research interests in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and physical activity, as well as participating in numerous collaborations with industry involving marine biotechnology, drug development, and food and drink supplements. My role includes supervision of postgraduate students, and research governance policy and compliance within the Division of Biomedical Sciences. Current research includes looking at why COVID-19 seems more severe in patients with diabetes and tracking of long-COVID symptoms to begin to identify the underlying mechanisms and inflammatory system responses.
