Research Interests

My main interest is in pulmonary pathology, the role of tissue-derived damage associated molecular patterns and their interaction with cognate receptors on cells of the innate immune system.  In particular, the role of DAMPs in influencing the tumour microenvironment.  Current work is focussed on the G protein coupled receptor formyl peptide receptor 1 which is central in driving neutrophil migration to sites of inflammation while a role in influencing epithelial and tumour cell function is also emerging
