I qualified from Bart's 1992. I undertook an MSc in Immunology at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School investigating the molecular basis of chronic beryllium disease. I was a research fellow at the MRC Centre for Immune Regulation investigating the clinical, immunological and molecular phenotype of patients with mycobacterial disease culminating in the award of a PhD.
