Biography

Key Skills 

Grant Funded

All aspects of having a personnel licence from understanding the law to practical usage of have a personal licence. This includes over 20 years of performing regulated procedures including surgery as well as planning experiments for myself as well as others. My main subject that I specilise in is behavioural essays, this can include elevated plus maze, open field, Y-maze and others. My in-vivo work is carried out on rodents. 

As well as using and teaching Regulated Procedures. I als maintain colonies as well as collaborate with other companies external and internal the transport and running of transgenic mouse stains. I have also had a large amount of time preparing and designing animal usage rooms. 

Research interests

Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases.
