Research and teaching
The primary focus of my research focus is on the mechanisms of anti-inflammatory glucocorticoid action. Glucocorticoids are probably the most important anti-inflammatory drugs available to clinicians and in an inhaled form are central to the management of asthma. However, in other inflammatory conditions, glucocorticoids may be less effective, or often ineffective. Understanding why glucocorticoids work in some inflammatory conditions, but not in others, is central to the ability to improve or supplement glucocorticoid-based anti-inflammatory therapies. Alternatively, understanding when an inflammatory condition will be refractory to glucocorticoid interventions allows the adoption of more effective therapeutic approaches.
