Other research

PhD funded by the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre


I carried out my medical undergraduate training at the University of Liverpool and graduated with MBChB (Commendation). During my undergraduate studies, I undertook an intercalated degree and was awarded an MRes in Clinical Sciences. After graduation, I was awarded an Academic Foundation Programme post at University Hospital Aintree in Liverpool, where I was able to continue my MRes epidemiological work on an early inflammatory arthritis cohort.


I moved to Manchester when I was awarded an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship in Rheumatology. During this fellowship, I trained in genetic epidemiology techniques and I carried out analysis on an early inflammatory arthritis cohort involving genetic associations with sub-components of disease activity and disability scores.


I was awarded an NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre Clinical Research Fellowship to carry out my PhD, which involved the conception and implementation of a phase 0 clinical trial of patients with rheumatoid arthritis starting adalimumab and etanercept biosimilars, the collection and analysis of pharmacological data from the above trial, and analysis of large-scale proteomics and genetics data, including the use of machine learning techniques.


I was re-deployed to front-line NHS services during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. This led to a series of publications around the immunodulatory potential of cholecalciferol therapy in the setting of acute SARS-COV-2 infection.


I was awarded an NIHR Academic Clinical Lectureship following the completion of my PhD. I am particularly interested in clinical disease outcome measures in inflammatory arthritis, analysis of large-scale, multi-faceted molecular data, and early-phase clinical trials with particular reference to dosing alteration that has been informed by population pharmacokinetic modelling and simulation.
