After graduating in Medicine from Cambridge University, I trained in respiratory medicine and clinical pharmacology. This included an industrial placement for phase 1 experience. I completed an MD at the University of Manchester, and then was appointed as senior lecturer in respiratory pharmacology based in the University Hospital of South Manchester in 2003. My research interests are the pharmacotherapy of Asthma and COPD with studies spanning from basic pharmacology investigations of anti-inflammatory drug action to clinical trials. I am medical director of the Medicines Evaluation Unit performing proof of concept studies in obstructive lung diseases.
