Research Summary

My current research interests fall into three major areas:


1.  Renal transplantation: innovative drug trials concerning new anti-rejection therapies and assessment of children post-renal transplantation, examining the fine balance between rejection and infection with biomarkers of paediatric renal transplantation (and avoidance of EBV-driven post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder).

2.  Systemic lupus erythematosis (SLE) and vasculitis: studying the aetiopathogenesis, management and outcome of childhood onset SLE, lupus nephritis and vasculitis.  There are currently several projects looking at treatment of SLE and vasculitis with novel agents and the clinicopathological correlations of lupus nephritis.

3.  Hypertension: examining the genetic linkage, management and long-term prognosis of childhood renovascular hypertension

Teaching Summary


I am involved in teaching and supervision of post-graduate medicine with BSc, MSc, MD and PhD students.
