Personal profile

Research Focus

I'm a specialty registrar in Infectious Diseases and Medical Microbiology, interested in new strategies to enhance the immune response against difficult-to-treat pathogens, with a focus on non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM)

NTM pulmonary disease is an emerging infectious disease with poor clinical outcomes and few effective therapies. Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) are mature, multipotent cells that regenerate injured tissues in normal health. Recent discoveries about their ability to modulate immune cells and release antimicrobial factors have highlighted a potential role in treating difficult infections.

Currently, I'm working with Prof Cecilia O'Kane, Dr Anna KrasnodembskayaDr Gunnar Schroeder and Dr Beckie Ingram to develop clinically-relevant models of NTM infection for testing the potential of MSCs and other immunomodulatory therapies.
