Description of Research Interests
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.
Research Interests
Autoimmunity Chronic inflamation Coeliac disease GENE EXPRESSION ANALYSIS
GENE POLYMORPHISM GENETICS Genetic Analysis of Systemic Inflammatory Response Syndrome (SARS) Genetic Mapping, Gene Sequence
Genetics Genetics of inflammatory disease Genomes, Genomics Genomic structure and function, molecular approaches to gene function
INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE Inflammatory bowel disease Molecular Genetics PSORIASIS
