Research Interests

I am a proteinase biochemist with interests in the molecular mechanisms that regulate the enzymic activity that mediates tissue destruction as well as the signal transduction events that lead to the transcriptional activation of those proteinase genes. My work is focussed on extracellular matrix remodelling events during pathology, with a particular emphasis within the setting of inflammatory joint diseases.
