Currently a Senor Lecturer in Neuroscience, Faculty of Life Sciences. I have a BSc in Biological Sciences majoring in Neurobiology from the University of Sussex (1978) and a PhD in Neurobiology from the University of Glasgow (1982). After two post-doctoral appointments in neurobiology at the Universities of Edinburgh and Sheffield, I was awarded a Royal Society (1983) University Research Fellowship which I held from 1986-1996 initially at Edinburgh and then at Manchester where I transfered to a Lectureship in 1996. I am a Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy as well as a Visiting Professor at The Institute of Child Health at The Children's Hospital Lahore. I hold awards for both research and teaching including the Casey Holter Essay Prize from the Society for Research in Hydrocephalus and Spina Bifida and an Innovations in the Curriculum award for my introduction of problem-based learning to an undergraduate degree program in biological science.Based on my research I have a patent in process and, along with clinical colleagues, am applying for a clinical trial of a new treatment to prevent and/or treat fetal-onset and neonatal hydrocephalus.
