Cambridge Immunology Network



I am a BHF Clinical Lecturer in Cardiovascular Medicine and Cardiology Registrar sub-specialising in interventional cardiology.


My main research interests centre around therapeutically targeting inflammation in atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction. I have an MPhil in Translation Medicine and Therapeutics and subsequently completed a PhD with Prof Ziad Mallat. For my PhD, I completed two early phase clinical trials on immuno-modulation in patients with myocardial infarction, targeting the adaptive immune system using low-dose interleukin-2 and rituximab. Currently, both therapies have been taken into phase 2b studies.


My ongoing research interests are in translational experimental medicine trials looking at immuno-modulation in cardiovascular diseases.
