Personal profile

Research interests

Our research focuses on understanding the behaviour of epithelial cells in normal tissues and during tumour formation, with recent work focusing on examining the expression of stem cell regulators in prostate cancer.

I also have a strong interest in improving the use and reliability of research antibodies. I founded and am the Chief Scientific Officer of the spin out company CiteAb ( CiteAb runs a citation based antibody search engine which aims to provide a better way for researchers to find antibodies which are suitable for their experiments. I have also contributed to a number of initiatives aimed at improving antibody validation, for example I am a founding guest editor of the F1000Research Antibody Validation Channel, which hosts a collection of primary papers, reviews and comment articles which focus on antibody validation.
