I am currently a research fellow with the multidisciplinary Biomaterials Research Unit (BRU). My research focuses on biomaterial/host interaction studies and biocompatibility testing of existing and new biomaterials including the assessment of soft contact lenses, wound dressings and an array of new hydrogel based polymers. This post followed on from my PhD with BRU which was entitled ‘Immunological and biochemical techniques in the analysis of tear proteins’. Prior to my PhD I took a post as a Clinical Scientist in tissue typing with the National Blood Service. In 1992 I worked in a rheumatic diseases diagnostic laboratory based in Birmingham University in conjunction with the Binding Site Ltd, as part of my MSc in Immunology. I gained my first degree in Microbiology from the University College Galway in Ireland (now NUIG) in 1991.
