Personal profile


Associate Research Director 

Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC)

I am the head and operational lead of the MAHSC Research Office, providing strategic and operational leadership for research support across MAHSC’s seven member organisations.  The MAHSC Research Office aims to provide consistency in working practices, meet ambitious targets and secure inward investment, alongside ensuring there are robust systems and processes for delivery of high quality research studies and clinical trials.

Working closely with Professor Colin Sibley, the MAHSC Research Director, I am responsible for co-ordinating an operational team of senior research managers across the MAHSC partnership. I am leading the harmonising of R&D processes to improve efficiency and effectiveness across MAHSC, develop a life sciences portal to support researchers and industry and establish a MAHSC training programme for researchers undertaking clinical trials.

Research interests

Lloyd's research interests focus on understanding the complex interactions of sensory, affective and cognitive components of the visceral pain neuromatrix and how they can be modulated by psychological and pharmacological means.  This is of particular clinical relevance to understanding the pathophysiological mechanisms that underpin functional gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and non-cardiac chest pain.  Much of Lloyd's research involves the use of functional magnetic resonance imaging techniques.  However, his current role now enables him to forge new research collaborations that utilise magnetic resonance imaging in order to translate clinical questions into imaging science.

Lloyd maintains research collaborations with Professor Simon Baron-Cohen (Cambridge University), Professor Steve Williams (Insitute of Psychiatry, London), Professor David Thompson (University of Manchester) and Professor Jan Tack at the University of Leuven, Belgium.
