I am a Molecular Biology graduate from the University of Glasgow. I gained my Ph.D. at Warwick University for studies on bacterial genetics. After postdoctoral work in bacterial genetics and protein engineering I joined Roslin Institute in 1990 to study sequence-structure-function relationships in the bovine major histocompatibility complex. I joined Moredun as a project leader in the viral immunomodulation programme in 2002. I have long term interests in the relationship between sequence variation and protein function, especially in the context of livestock disease. I have studied the genetic variation of pathogens and the immune system of livestock species for over 20 years and am interested in the molecular interactions between host and pathogen.
