    Research Statement

    My main focus is Cystic Fibrosis focused on understanding pathophysiology of infection and inflammation and the translation of new therapies into clinical practice. This programme of work is undertaken with laboratory and clinical collaborators in QUB. This includes a significant commitment from the NICRN (Respiratory Health) where I am PI on 6 current clinical trials. I have smaller programmes with others in COPD, bronchiectasis, lung cancer including clinical trials. My research is funded by grants from government agencies, charitable bodies, industry and money raised from clinical trials. I have developed a clinical trials network for Respiratory Health funded by the Northern Ireland Research and Development Office.

    In all my research I endeavour to bring scientists and clinicians together to promote inter-disciplinary research. I have been successful in developing programmes of research across disciplines, hospitals and universities in Northern Ireland and across the UK and Europe.
