Our research focuses on understanding the physiological importance of cationic host defence peptides (CHDP) to host defences against bacterial and viral infections. In addition we study the potential of CHDP in the development of novel therapeutic approaches, with the capacity to circumvent microbial resistance strategies to conventional therapeutics by enhancing natural defences.

The group is part of the University of Edinburgh / MRC Centre for Inflammation Research; a multidisciplinary centre established in 1999 to bring together a critical mass of internationally outstanding researchers in inflammation, harnessing the skills of basic and clinical scientists to conduct internationally competitive research on the roles of inflammation in health and disease, in order to develop new approaches toward diagnosis, prevention and treatment.
