Research Summary

Dr Buckley directs a research initiative towards fetal and neonatal gene therapy for early fetal lung disorders within the Institute for Women’s Health at UCL. This involves extensive skills in preclinical models of human disease including complex surgical techniques and diverse molecular biology methods. Most recently, she has acted as principal scientist on a five-year Somatotransgenic Bioimaging project (funded by the European Research Council) which aims to develop a process of precisely measuring biochemical pathways in live animals by studying light emission.

Dr Buckley plays an active teaching role; she is co-lead of two M.Sc. modules within the Institute for Women’s Health and lectures on several courses in other departments. In addition, she is departmental graduate research advisor to the research students. This role includes organisation of the two annual student research days, administration of mentoring schemes both for graduate students and early-career researchers, holding weekly drop-in session for students and liaising with administrative staff and potential new students about PhD opportunities.

Dr Buckley is an active member of the IfWH Athena Swan self-assessment team and is working on the department’s gold application for submission in November 2016.
