Research

August – September 1988

Pathology research project with Dr GBM Lindop, Department of Pathology, Glasgow University, sponsored by the Scottish Home and Health Department. This was the first study to show the morphology of the mammalian peripolar cell. I became familiar with the use of both scanning and transmission electron microscopy techniques. The project was selected as Glasgow University’s entry in the Cappell Award.

March 1997 – September 2001

Project investigating the chemical enhancement of facial nerve repair in the department of clinical neurosciences, the University of Edinburgh, under the supervision of Mr MA Glasby, reader in experimental neurology. This project involves the creation of a model for facial paralysis and repair using ‘neurotrophic growth factors’ in an effort to improve upon current outcome results. This was the subject of my MD thesis. September 2006 – September 2007

A prospective study ‘A quantitative study on the differences in perceptions of training requirements between otolaryngology surgical trainers and trainees’. This work formed the basis of my 12000 word thesis in my Masters of Education degree at the University of Leeds. I passed this in October 2007 (with merit). This work was presented to the North of England Otolaryngology Society Spring Meeting in March 2008.
