Personal profile


After graduating with an honours degree in Biochemistry from the University of Oxford, Andrew gained his PhD from the University of London with the Imperial Cancer Research Fund, before joining Professor Kay Davies at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, London and then the Institute of Molecular Medicine, Oxford. Here he was part of the team, which identified mutations in the Survival Motor Neurone (SMN) gene as causative of Spinal Muscular Atrophy.He returned to London, joining the group of Professor Raj Thakker at the Clinical Sciences Centre, Hammersmith Hospital and relocated with him to Oxford firstly, as a senior postdoctoral researcher uncovering the genetic causes of disorders of calcium metabolism.Andrew has a consistent record of publication in high quality, peer-reviewed journals (Nature, New England Journal of Medicine, Nature Genetics, Journal of Clinical Investigation, Human Molecular Genetics, Journal of Biological Chemistry).Both as the senior scientist in the Academic Endocrine Unit and in his own right, Andrew was successful in attracting peer-reviewed funding from bodies such as the MRC, EU and ARUK. His expertise, technical knowledge and insight in the field is widely recognised and he has been regularly invited to speak at international (American Society of Bone and Mineral Research, EMBO workshops on GATA factors, Translational Research in Europe Applied Technologies for Osteoarthritis (EU Framework 7) Consortium meetings) and national conferences (British Endocrine Society, Bone Research Society).Andrew has recently been recruited as a Senior Lecturer in Molecular Biology at Ulster University where he has joined the Vision Research GroupResearch InterestsMechanisms of lens homeostasis in the development of cataractsGenetics of anterior eye diseaseTeaching InterestsApplied Genetics, Molecular Biology
