Biographical details

I trained in Natural Sciences at Trinity Hall, Cambridge and then Medicine at Guy’s Hospital Medical School. I undertook further clinical training in London at Queen Square and Hammersmith Hospital and then a PhD at University of London. My post-doctoral training was at the National Jewish Center for Immunology in Denver, Colorado.

I was thereafter awarded a Wellcome Trust Senior Clinical Fellowship, during which I worked at Imperial College London, becoming Professor of Rheumatology. I moved to King’s in 2010, having obtained a personal Chair in Molecular Medicine.
