    Our research applies the latest proteomics methods to understand how changes in proteins in our body influence health and disease.

    In particular we are interested in developing new techniques to advance basic laboratory research and clinical studies. Ongoing research studies include:
    - Understanding the cell signalling pathways contributing to inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
    - Developing a blood test to predict which children are at risk of developing rheumatic fever.
    - Detecting a test for detecting stomach cancer at early, more treatable stages.

Supervision Statement

  • Research interest 

    We collaborate widely with scientists and clinicians to advanced proteomics technologies to identify and quantify proteins in cells and biofluids.

    Our laboratory covers diverse range of areas that can be categorised into five key focus areas:
    - Interactions: Elucidation of protein-protein and protein-drug interactions
    - Protein dynamics: Investigating the mechanisms of protein function
    - Signalling: Investigation of signalling pathways (using phosphoproteomics and ubiquitin enrichment strategies)
    - Biomarkers: Identification of prognostic and diagnostic biomarkers of disease in biofluids
    - Epigenetics: Quantification of intact histones and their modifications in developmental and disease models
