Location: Level 6 Clinical Sciences Building, St James's University Hospital


I graduated in Medicine from the University of Glasgow in 2002 having completed a BSc in Pathology during his studies.  I was a Senior House Officer in Medicine at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham before starting specialty training in Gastroenterology in Birmingham.  Specialising in the management in liver diseases I was awarded a MRC Clinical Research Training Fellowship in basic mechanisms of hepatitis C virus infection with Professors Jane McKeating and David Adams.  After that I was appointed as NIHR Clinical Lecturer and completed the first clinical study of a host-targeting entry inhibitor in patients undergoing liver transplant.  In 2015 I was awarded a University Academic Fellowship at the University of Leeds to build a research programme allied to the Liver Unit at St. James’s University Hospital.
