    Research Statement

    My major interest is the Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS). My research strategy in ARDS is to investigate potential novel therapeutic agents in ARDS in vitro, in vivo in a human LPS model of ARDS and in phase 2 clinical trials to inform subsequent phase 3 clinical trials. My roles as the UK Intensive Care Society Co-Director of Research and the NICRN (Critical Care) clinical lead, mean I am well placed to develop the novel therapeutic targets into phase 3 clinical trials. I am currently investigating the role of statins, aspirin and extracorporeal carbon dioxide removal in ARDS.

    I am also currently investigating MSCs, oncostatin M and anti-microbial peptides with a view to developing these agents as potential therapeutic agents for ARDS.

    My other current research interests are nosocomial infection, sepsis diagnostics, delirium in critical illness and interventions to enhance recovery from critical illness.
