QMUL University Veterinarian and Welfare Officer Experimental Models Lead

Centre: Neuroscience and Trauma



As the University Veterinarian I provide advice on animal health and care for the animals used in research procedures at QMUL, supporting veterinary care and advising on experimental methodologies to promote the implantation of the 3Rs principles and safeguarding the welfare of the animals. I also support the training and education of QMUL staff undertaking animal experimentation procedures, advising on the implementation of the animal license projects in accordance with the UK/EU regulatory requirements

As the manager of the C4Ts Models Core Unit, I develop, validate and standardise experimental models for effective trauma translation. My research brings together complex models of trauma, haemorrhage, shock, coagulopathy and central nervous injury to facilitate the full translation of experimental work into clinical practice. Having extensively worked in preclinical imaging, I am also very interested in the implementation of forefront imaging modalities in our models, to maximise their translational efficacy and to support the development of new biomarkers.

As a FHEA I also teach in various iBSC, MSCs and PBL programs within SMD, associated to preclinical modelling, imaging technologies and animal welfare and regulations.  I am also a member of the Animal Welfare and Ethical Review Body at QMUL.
