My BSc Physiology (1st Class Hons) MB ChB (Hons) and PhD degrees were all awarded by Manchester. Current research interests are gastrointestinal physiology in health and disease particularly the interactions between nutrients and the gut epithelium, gut inflammation, gut hormones, and gut-to-brain signalling. I have a major interest in education and training also.
I trained in Gastroenterology and General Medicine in the North West Region also, with a period as an MRC Travelling Fellow at Harvard University.
