In 2008 I was appointed to a Senior Lecturer post in the Section of Ophthalmology and Neuroscience in Leeds Institute of Molecular Medicine. Prior to this, from 2002-2008 I was a CRUK scientist in the CRUK Clinical Centre at St James’s University Hospital in Leeds. From 1999-2002 I held an MRC Research Fellowship and a University of Leeds Research Fellowship in the Molecular Medicine Unit in Leeds.

My first position at the University of Leeds began in 1995, as a post-doctoral researcher in the Molecular Medicine Unit. Throughout my time in Leeds my independent research has been focused on the cell biology of microtubules and microtubule associated proteins, a topic with wide applicability across medical research that has allowed me to pursue studies in areas as divergent as neurobiology and cancer research.
