My teaching interests are in Biochemistry, Cell Biology and Protein Chemistry. I am particularly interested in inspiring students in the field of growth factor and hormone signalling and how this fundamentally underpins normal growth and development, and how a understanding in this field also impacts on an understanding of molecular basis of disease. I also aim to provide opportunities to expose students to the excitement of medical research.
