Level 1, William Leech Building
My research is based on the development and application of novel sensor technologies to address unmet clinical need. I have significant involvement in projects that integrate optical and amperometric sensor technologies with cell and tissue-based models of disease processes. The objective of this work is to gain a greater understanding of the pathophysiology associated with disease pathways and subsequently devise effective intervention strategies. Research areas include cancer biology, hepatology and myalgic encephalomyelitis (M.E.). This work is undertaken in partnership with academic, clinical and industrial colleagues and has a strong focus on translational impact.
I am a member of the Newcastle Molecular Pathology Node management board. A key tenet of the Node is to drive advances in molecular pathology by closely collaborating with partners in academia, the NHS and industry.
I lead the Node’s Biomedical Engineering strand. Work is focussed on combining innovative sensor developments with advances in molecular photonics to enable the real-time, intraoperative detection of tumour margins during cancer surgery. This work aims to improve surgical accuracy and maximise the chances of a successful outcome for the patient without the need for adjuvant therapies.
I work within the Stratified Medicine, Biomarkers and Therapeutics strand of the Institute of Cellular Medicine. I am also a member of the Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologies (DTT) research group.

My teaching commitments relate to the Medical Biotechnology module of the Biomedical Sciences degree programme. Lecture material covers fundamental concepts associated with the design and development of biosensors. There is also a strong translational focus with particular emphasis on the development of sensor technology to address currently unmet clinical need.
