Endothelin and CTGF in Inflammatory Bowel Disease. I have presented research ideas to the Royal London Hospital and University College London for my Cutlers Fellowship Award.
My PhD Research (Awarded 2014): Endothelin-1 and Receptors in Colorectal Cancer. I introduced new laboratory techniques to UCL and proved ET-1 modulation of tumour and stromal cells. Work involved proliferation, migration and contraction of relevant cells, gene arrays, PCR, q-PCR, protein expression, quantum dot analysis and auto-radiography pharmacodynamics and kinetics. Silencing RNA was also created to prove findings. Thesis, multiple publications and presentations produced. Continued publications, laboratory and clinical work planned. University College London.
With my wife and three young children, I am now re-visiting my hobbies that include orienteering, canoeing, rock climbing and skiing (2 star silver). I still enjoy swimming (gold, 1 mile & survival awards), occasional trampolining (1st for under 16 age group), badminton and Jujitsu. I also enjoy drawing and painting, as well as SLR photography work (Canon 7D MkII) and fund raising for charity events.
