I am interested in the genetics/genomics of common diseases with an inflammatory component, particularly coeliac disease, inflammatory bowel disease and sepsis. We currently also have programmes into the genetic basis of psoriasis and oesophageal cancers in conjunction with collaborators nationwide and in Europe.
