I am currently the Director of the Teaching Academy in the School of Medicine and I also teach the subject of Pharmacology to our Medical and BSc students.

Although we only ever want drugs to have a therapeutic effect in patients, we also have to recognise that all drugs have the potential to cause unwanted side effects. So the more we understand about: the composition of drugs; how they have their effects and how a patient responds to the presence of a drug in their body, the safer prescribing medicines becomes.

To more fully understand the actions of drugs in the body, I teach our students everything from cardiac electrophysiology to epigenetics and everything in between.

My teaching uses interactive computer animations to help explain scientific processes, plus I give our students hands-on practical experiences of using drugs in clinical scenarios.

I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
