Research interests

My research activities are centred on immunological and inflammatory responses to infection and in particular responses to bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS; endotoxin) and related molecular species. Better understanding of such mechanisms will help to develop therapies for severe infectious conditions such as sepsis that carry a high mortality. My group has identified links between lipid modifying enzymes  (lysophospholipid acyltransferases)  that control cell membrane composition and leukocyte signalling responses to LPS and other Toll-like receptor (TLR) ligands. Current work is utilising gene knockdown to identify specific roles for these enzymes in the innate immune response to infection to aid development of new therapeutic and diagnostic approaches. Recently, with collaborators in Birmingham, Nottingham and Cambridge, we have developed novel nano-electrode-cell constructs to identify highly resolved spatial and temporal reactive oxygen (ROS) signalling events in response to LPS in single cells. We are also interested in how inflammatory responses can be amplified by interactions of the signalling pathways with environmental/exogenous molecules and we have established new cell models to explore these effects. These include 3D cell cultures (spheroids) that are more representative of cells and tissues  in vivo . The cell culture models are part of our agenda to reduce or replace animals in research (3Rs). 

Current projects include:

·         The molecular mechanisms by which phospholipid modifying enzymes (lysophospholipid acyltyransferases) regulate innate immune responses and identification of these species as novel therapeutic and diagnostic targets.

·          Measurement and role of reactive oxygen species produced in short time scales and at discreet subcellular sites as triggers of innate immune responses to infectious stimuli.  

Role of LPS-induced inflammatory responses in the pathology of Parkinson's Disease

·         Development of new biomarkers for infectious disease and sepsis and development of novel endotoxin detection systems for clinical and environmental use.

·         Development of 3D cell cultures (spheroids) as novel models for infection and inflammation and as replacements for animals in infection and environmental screening research.


Research degrees awarded to supervised students

I have successfully supervised 28 PhD students (currently supervising and co-supervising 5 PhD students); 2 MD students, 5 MPhil, 12 MSc students.
