 Research Experience

(1999 - MSc project) A comparison of two techniques, PCR and ELISA, for
          determination of malaria sporozoite rates.  This required that
I utilize and modify
          established protocols for their novel use in this manner.
This involved a degree of
          problem solving and an in-depth understanding of the
techniques involved.

(1998 - Wellcome Trust Scholarship) I was awarded £1000 to undertake an
8 week
           research project to enhance the sensitivity of an immunoassay
for the detection of
          s100 protein.
          The project was linked to a PhD investigating the role of s100
proteins in free radical
          induced apoptosis of lymphocytes at sites of chronic
inflammation.  The ELISA used
          for the detection of s100 protein was sensitive down to 0.6
?g/ml.  The project was
          successful in optimizing the assay to identify s100
concentrations in the ng/ml range.

(1998 - BSc project) A review of current “species” concepts.  This
involved a discussion
          and evaluation of current concepts and concluded with my own
interpretation and
         definition of species. It was directed at explaining the
difficulty of categorizing
         cohesions which are recognised as species, yet at the same time
underlining factors
         responsible for such observed cohesion.
