Interests

My group has an interest in in vitro modelling tissues for several aspects of my research; 3D models of skin to understand the ichthyosis seen in sphingosine-1-phosphate lyase deficiency, a multi-organ pathology also involving adrenal insufficiency, steroid resistant nephrosis and neurological deficits. To study the development and maintenance of the adrenal cortex, to try and understand what goes wrong in syndromes of adrenal insufficiency.
