Overview

I am based in the Centre for Medical Education here at Cardiff University School of Medicine.  I am a scientist with a research background and a particular interest in the immune system and its involvment in chronic inflammatory disease.  Much of my previous research focused on the role of white blood cells (neutrophils and macrophages) in airway diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis.  My passion for immunology and its interface with human disease continues in my various roles within the Centre for Medical Education.

I am Deputy Director for Year 3 of the MBBCh.  This is the first year of Phase 2 of the undergraduate medicine curriculum where students spend a large proportion of their time learning whilst on placememnt in clinical environments.  

I am Deputy Director for the Student Selected Component (SSC) programme within the MBBCh.  SSCs offer medical students the opportunity to undertake projects of up to seven weeks in any area related to their professional training.

I am lead for the Respiratory Medicine Case for our Year 1 students.

in addition to these roles, I undertake a range of teaching and assessment activity across the 5 year MBBCh curriculum and the BSC in Medical Pharmacology.  I sit on the School of Medicine Research Ethics Committee.
