I review manuscripts for high profile journals including Nature Biotechnology, Hepatology, Gastroenterology, Gut, Journal of Immunology, and Clinical and Experimental Immunology(CEI); recently completed term on the editorial board of CEI.
In addition to my clinical work, I am a Principle Investigator within Cardiff University running a research group in the School of Medicine with 4 PhD students and 2 post-doctoral scientists. A key aim of our research is to design vaccines against cancer, concentrating currently on colorectal cancer. We also have an active interest in understanding how the immune system functions in the context of several other diseases including infections such as viral hepatitis. Below are listed some key papers I have published recently.
