My long term research interest has been concerned with human individuality, its origins and significance in health and disease, in particular in relation to function, with a recent focus on gene regulatory regions. I have experience and knowledge of the gastrointestinal and respiratory epithelia. My research covers molecular and population genetics, and genetic epidemiology and has included research on lactase persistence as a major topic, and also mucins, inflammatory pathways, Crohns disease and population pharmacogenetics. I no longer run a 'Wet Lab' but continue actively with collaborative and 'Dry Lab' research.
As an Emeritus Professor I do not have a teaching role but give occasional lectures and advice to Undergraduate and Postgraduate students.
