Key Research Interests

Our interests lie in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions in health and disease, with an emphasis on inflammation. We have some focus on how metalloproteinases of the MMP, ADAM and ADAMTS families may modulate these interactions.

Current Research Projects

  • Mechanisms underpinning breakdown of the blood brain barrier in Multiple sclerosis (collaboration with Martin Lee, NNUH and Mohammad Hajihosseini, Mette Mogensen and Matt Gage, BIO.)
  • Norwich Skin Platform: exploring the effects of plant extracts on skin biology in health and disease (collaboration with Cathie Martin, JIC, Jeremy Turner, NNUH, Marc Moncrieff, NNUH).
  • Role of WT1 in cell migration (collaboration with Nick Hastie, MRC HGU Edinburgh)
  • Adipose tissue inflammation (collaborative project with Matt Fenech and Jeremy Turner, MED and NNUH)

 

 

 

Life in our research group 

We are cell biologists studying several key disease processes. Using in vivo and in vitro approaches and state-of-the-art imaging techniques we work to unravel the complex mechanisms involved in inflammation in health and disease. We also have interests in modelling in vivo disease scenarios by growing cells in a 3-dimensional matrix and at appropriate oxygen tension. Our work benefits from collaborations within BIO and with colleagues across the Norwich Research Park and across the UK, Europe and the USA and in pharmaceutical companies.
