I completed my PhD study in the (then) developing field of renal cold preservation for transplantation in 1974. Since that time, my research has been focused on storage of cells, tissues, and organs for clinical application. This has involved research into biochemical and functional changes induced by (1) hypothermia where organs and tissues are stored in the temperature range of 1-4oC in the liquid state, and by (2) cryopreservation at deep subzero temperatures, where the confounding factor of ice formation plays a major role. I was awarded DSc in 1998, and became Fellow of the International Society for Cryobiology in 2008.  

Research Summary

Research into low temperature preservation of cells, tissues and organs for clinical applications; effects of ischaemia / reperfusion injury in surgery; organ-specific metabolic effects of chemotherapy, surgery and transplantation; liver and pancreas studies; translational research on hypothermic liver perfusion for transplantation; stem cells and tissue engineering in hepatic support and vascular biology; cryopreservation of reproductive tissues.

Teaching Summary

SSC Year 2; Organ preservation for transplantation. Contributing lectures in transplantation sciences to Intercalated BSc in Surgical Sciences;  IBSc in Clinical Sciences; MSc in Surgical Sciences; module on liver transplantation joint with Professors Brian Davidson, Professor Motallebzdeh. Postgraduate tutor and supervisor for M Phil / MD Res / PhD thesis projects relating to applied cryobiology, transplantation and surgical sciences. Professor in the UNESCO Chair in Cryobiology contributing teaching materials in cryobiology. Visiting professor in cryobiology at University of Bedfordshire; contribution to MSc module (applications of cryobiology in medicine and biotechnology).
