Research interests

Vitamin D Wound healing Photoprotection Skin inflammatory/immune responses Photodynamic therapy

About

Based in the Division of Musculoskeletal & Dermatological Sciences within the Faculty of Biology, Medicine & Health, research interests include skin physiology in health and disease. Current research focuses on the study of skin-light interactions, particularly ultraviolet (UV) radiation. This includes UV-induced skin inflammation, UV-nutrient interaction (vitamin D synthesis, nutritional photoprotection), UV-induced DNA damage, and mechanisms of repair.
