Head of School
Mechanistic studies into canine disease, specifically the focus of my research is comparative cancer biology. This involves studies on the stem cell basis of cancer through to the translation of new therapeutics into clinical development.
Current research interestsThe Comparative Oncology and Stem Cell Research Group is a multidisciplinary team that draws its expertise from both clinical and laboratory trained staff and is further augmented by collaborations within the Edinburgh area research community (University of Edinburgh cancer research centre, The Roslin Institute) the USA and EU. Our approach to the integration of laboratory and clinical research make us well placed to carry out high quality translational studies. Many of the group members are also faculty members of the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies.
