Research activities

Leader of the Women’s Health Research Group (hyper-link to research page) within LICAP.

Our research focuses on multiple facets of women’s health, in particular endometrial cancer, various gynaecological disorders, pregnancy complications and their perinatal sequelae. The main thrust of our work is to understand, model and modulate the inflammatory/immune dysfunctions responsible for these various pathologies. We apply a range of methodologies ranging from next generation sequencing and genome-wide expression microarrays  through to multiplex immunoassays, NMR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, in vitro culture and mathematical modelling. In addition to gaining a better understanding of these disorders, our aims are to improve screening and early detection as well as implementing novel therapeutic interventions in the context of translational clinical trials.
