Biography

I am Professor of Molecular Endocrinology at the BHF Glasgow Cardiovascular Research Institute.  I graduated from the University of Glasgow with a BSc (Hons) Biochemistry and then from Edinburgh University with a PhD.  After a 3-year INSERM post-doctoral Fellowship in Paris, I returned to Glasgow in 1994. I am co-director of the University MSc Cardiovascular Sciences programme and the Institute Post-Graduate Director. I am a member council for the Society for Endocrinology and co-lead the Society’s adrenal/ cardiovascular network, I am also a member of the nominations and publications committee.   I am a reviewer for multiple national and international funding organisations and journals and I sit on the Chief Scientist Office committee for experimental and translational medicine.   I am the UK lead of an EU-COST network (ADMIRE)  and WP co-lead of an H2020 programme.  I have served as an Editorial board member for Endocrinology and been Chairman of the International Aldosterone conference.  

I am the UK lead of an EU-COST network (ADMIRE) and WP co-lead of an EU H2020 programme  (ens@t-ht).  I have served as an Editorial board member for Endocrinology and been Chairman of the International Aldosterone conference.

Research interests

Member: 

I lead a translational research group investigating the role of the mineralocorticoid aldosterone in cardiovascular disease, in particular hypertension and stroke.   Our research focuses on the regulation of aldosterone production by the adrenal gland and its action via the mineralocorticoid receptor and we have active collaborations with groups in Europe and the USA.  Our studies integrate basic molecular biology, cell biology and human clinical studies and utilise a wide range of transferrable techniques including cell culture, RT-PCR, Immunochemistry, DNA sequencing, miRNA arrays, RNAseq, reporter gene studies and bioinformatics.  Our work is currently funded by studentships and grants and from the EU (H2020), CSO, BHF and Governments of Malaysia and Saudi Arabia.
