Research Summary

Research: 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. With 20 years’ experience in preclinical models of human disease, her skills include 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.


Teaching: Dr Buckley plays an active teaching role; she is director of a new MSc Women’s Health programme (starting 2018) and co-lead of two modules on the Prenatal Genetics & Fetal Medicine MSc at IfWH. She also lectures on several courses in other departments. In addition, she is departmental graduate research advisor to the research students which includes organisation of 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.


Equality: Dr Buckley is co-lead of the IfWH Equality, Diversity and Inclusion team and was instrumental in the Institute’s successful gold Athena SWAN award application in April 2017, one of only 10 such awards in the UK. She shares good equality practise across UCL and internationally (for example, with the European Society for Gene and Cell Therapy).
