Areas of expertise I trained in clinical medicine at the University of Bristol, graduating in 1998. Junior doctor posts in general medicine in the South West and Nottingham were followed by one year in New Zealand. I then undertook a Wellcome Trust Research Training Fellowship in the Microvascular Research Laboratories in the Department of Physiology in Bristol, leading to a PhD examining intrinsic regulation of glomerular permeability. I am currently Honorary Clinical Lecturer and Specialist Registrar in Nephrology in the Academic Renal Unit in Bristol. My research interests centre around regulation of microvascular permeability in systemic and glomerular vessels. We currently use light, confocal, multiphoton and electron microscopy, coupled with microvessel cannulation and perfusion, to measure permeability defects, and repair of those defects, in health, diabetes and kidney disease
