I am a Wellcome Senior Fellow in Basic Biomedical Sciences, Professor of Respiratory Immunology, Head of the Division of Respiratory Sciences at the National Heart and Lung Institute, and Vice Dean for Institutional Affairs in the Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College, London. I undertook BSc and PhD degrees in Immunology at Kings College London, before completing Postdocs at Guys Hospital London and Harvard Medical School, Boston. I then spent time at a Biotech company in the USA before returning to the UK to start my own lab at Imperial.
My work explores the interactions between resident lung cells and infiltrating inflammatory cells to determine how these interactions influence development and resolution of pulmonary inflammation. The lab uses a mixture of in vivo mouse models and in vitro culture systems using cells from patients to investigate the mechanisms underlying the pulmonary immune response to inhaled allergens, as well as pathogens and other inhaled stimuli. Our current focus is predominantly how the genetic background of an individual and the external environment influences epithelial-immune interactions, particularly with respect to development of pulmonary immune responses across the life course.
