Research

My research focus is on the manufacture and formulation of biopharmaceuticals including therapeutic proteins, DNA, viruses and cells.   My current research work is on the design and manufacture of AAV gene vectors and nanoparticles for ocular therapy. I also research procedures to improve the preservation of cells and especially pancreatic islets for the treatment of diabetes.

I enjoy wide international collaborations, particularly in China as a Qiushi Chair Professor at the University of Zhejiang and an Honorary Professor at the Universities of Tianjin and Sichuan.
