I currently cosupervise 3 PhD students.  Two esteemed senior colleagues have been awarded advanced research degrees under my supervision.  I welcome enquiries from students wishing to study for a higher research degree in the general areas of pregnancy or infertility.

I codirect the masters programmes in Reproduction and Pregnancy (MRes MFH and MMed Sci (MFH)), and supervise projects for the students:  http://www.mhs.manchester.ac.uk/postgraduate/programmes/researchmasters/mfh/coursedetails/index.aspx?code=08222&pg=2

Undergraduate teaching includes a long tenure as Unit Coordinator for the popular final year Life Sciences course Human Reproductive Biology.    I teach glycobiology to final year life sciences students and reproductive physiology to first year MBChB students.   The laboratory hosts undergraduate students from FLS and FMHS for special study modules, dissertations and/or project placements.

From 2013 I have been on the teaching faculty of the annual placenta postgraduate workshop in Kingston, Ontario:   http://www.queensu.ca/workshops/placenta/
