Our group’s aim is to improve diagnosis, treatment and management of infection, with a focus on brain infections in children and adults in the UK and world-wide.
Our research interests centre on the host responses to severe infection and inflammation, particularly neurological insults, with a key focus on identifying diagnostic and prognostic markers to assist patient management.
In addition, we aim to better understand the role of host and pathogen responses in determining the outcome of brain infections and inflammation.
We use transcriptomic and proteomic approaches to explore these responses, primarily in patient populations but also cell models.
