  • Over 20 years’ experience of theoretical and technical biochemistry, immunology, and toxicology, with the ability to deliver high quality R & D under the pressure of strict time-lines.
  • Collaborative team player, and also able to drive projects forward by my own initiative with associated leadership skills.
  • Excellent strategic planning and organizational skills.
  • First class verbal and written skills, able to disseminate knowledge concisely by both oral presentation and production of experimental reports and publications.
  • Flexible, enthusiastic, and pro-active problem solver.

 

  • Keen and enthusiastic undergraduate and post-graduate teacher, mentor, and tutor, nominated for teaching-related awards.
  • Devised and delivered teaching material and assessments for a new BSc (Hons) degree program (began 2010), that attracts an increasing number of well-qualified students year on year, and teaching and workshop delivery to medical students.
  • Established an independent research group with a focus upon protein post-translational modifications, cellular signaling and pathology.
  • Attracted external research council and industrial funding for research projects, with results published in leading research journals.
Research Interests

My research & development career has been concerned with understanding cellular signaling and the protein changes and modifications that can trigger pathology, and how therapeutics can limit disease progression.  Many extracellular signals bind to specific trans-membranous receptors to initiate a cellular signaling pathway [1-4,9,19].  Signal transduction invariably requires protein post-translational modifications (PTMs) to propagate intracellular signaling events.  Additionally, PTMs arise from extracellular xenobiotic agents that cross cell membranes.  An example is environmental pesticides that can adduct cellular proteins including a number of specific neuronal targets [8,10,13,14,16,17,19].  Other toxic agents such as alcohol trigger protein PTMs and damage to tissues and cellular proteins [12,20,21]

By utilizing proteomic strategies we have identified the damage that arises from these agents, and their specific cellular and nuclear (epigenetic) protein targets [5-8,10-17,20,21].  One such protein target is protein isoaspartyl methyltransferase (PIMT), an enzyme that normally repairs age-related protein damage, and whose activity is impaired by alcohol consumption [5,6,11,12,18,20,21].

My current laboratory studies include an examination of the targets and consequences of environmental pesticide exposures; hepato- and neuro-pathology of alcohol abuse; and studies of the protein PTMs and protein aggregation in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
