I am an NIHR Clinical Lecturer in Transplantation Surgery with research interests in chronic antibody-mediated rejection (CAMR), B cell depletion and antibody incompatible transplantation.
I completed an MD(Res) at King’s College London in 2014 on ‘The role of B cell depletion in renal transplantation’. This included work as a Co-Investigator for an NIHR Comprehensive Clinical Research Network (CRN) Portfolio Study – the ReMIND trial (RituxiMab INDuction in renal transplantation). I am an author of a systematic review with the Cochrane Collaboration, examining the use of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies in induction for renal transplantation. I am also a Co-Investigator of the NIHR CRN Portfolio study ‘ABO Antibody Titres in Adult Patients Waiting for a Transplant’.
My current work involves investigation of the association between ischaemia-reperfusion injury (IRI), progression of cellular infiltration of renal allografts, formation of tertiary lymphoid organs (TLOs) and the development of CAMR in renal transplantation.
I combine my research work with a post as an Honorary Specialty Registrar in Transplant Surgery at Addenbrooke’s Hospital and have been accepted on to the NIHR Leadership Programme for Trainees.
