Areas of expertise My research focuses on the molecular mechanisms regulating vascular smooth muscle cell proliferation. In particular, we are interested in the role of extracellular proteases, ECM remodelling and ECM-dependent signalling pathway. Recent research has focussed on how these signalling pathways regulate the expression of the SCFSkp2 ubiquitin ligase protein Skp2 which is an important cell cycle regulator.
