I joined Aston Medical School in 2014 as a Teaching Fellow to head up recruitment of General Practices for Community Health teaching of medical students. I am also the Director of Research and Development for Vaccine Research International Plc which I helped establish in 2002 and which has developed a vaccine against Staphylococcal infections which has undergone a successful Phase I clinical trial.
After graduating, I started my research career at Birmingham University in hospital infection and then moved on to vaccine research.
Fundraising through shareholders to establish Vaccine Research International Plc in 2002 and subsequent fundraisings through the same funding source; latest in 2013.
