Staff Research Interests
The following staff members are most likely to consider the supervision of postgraduate students in related research disciplines:
Professor Peter Diggle
Spatial and longitudinal data analysis as applied to environmental epidemiology and tropical disease epidemiology; longitudinal studies in biomedical and health services research. The development of novel statistical methods for analysing spatial and/or temporal variation in experimental or observational data.
Spatio-temporal point process models and methods for infectious disease data; geostatistical models and methods for environmental and tropical disease epidemiology; joint modelling of repeated measurements and time-to-event outcomes in clinical trials with longitudinal follow-up. Also see Professor Peter Diggle's staff profile.
Dr Dawn Goodwin
Research in Medical Education, particularly the development and assessment of professionalism in Medicine’.
Social studies of science and technology in medical practice and theories of situated learning. The use of qualitative methods in health research. Also see Dr Dawn Goodwin's staff profile.
Dr Karen Grant
In collaboration with the Biomedical Sciences Unit in the Department of Biological Sciences: The identification, characterisation and validation of novel drug targets for the medically important protozoan parasites, Leishmania and Trypanosoma brucei, with a particular emphasis on protein kinases. The design, discovery and optimisation of parasite-selective cyclin dependent kinase inhibitors, and the role of CK1 (casein kinase 1) enzymes in these parasites. Also see Dr Karen Grant's staff profile.
Dr Howard Lindsay
The mechanisms of the maintenance of genome stability, in particular the cellular responses to DNA damage and DNA replication stress. The use of Xenopus cell-free egg extracts as a model system, leading to a greater understanding of the way in which DNA damage response pathways are integrated with cell cycle control and how failure of these pathways can lead to the development of cancer. Also see Dr Howard Lindsay's staff profile.
Professor Colin Ockleford
Cellular and immuno-pathology of the maternofetal interaction. Also see Professor Colin Ockleford's staff profile.
Dr Gill Vince
The immunobiology of the human reproductive process and the factors affecting pregnancy outcome. Also see Dr Gill Vince's staff profile.
Dr Maggie Mort
Science, technology and medicine studies - in particular studies of clinical practice, learning and evidence. Telecare and domestic space - in particular governance and ethics of new care technologies. Evidence in action studies - in particular lay ethnographies of technoscience. Disaster and recovery studies. Also see Dr Maggie Mort's staff profile.
