Research Interests

I am interested in the molecular genetics of inherited diseases of the dog and cat, including inherited metabolic defects, endocrinopathies and cardiomyopathies.

Recently I have been working on hyperparathyroidism in the keeshond and am interested in the molecular basis of primary epilepsy in the keeshond dog and other dog breeds. Epilepsy in the keeshond is being investigated using genome-wide association analysis in collaboration with the Animal Health Trust.

I also have an interest in clinical immunology particularly the management of immune-mediated haemolytic anaemia and would like to investigate comparative treatment regimens for this disease.
