  2. Epidemiology of glycans in health and disease
  3. International Health
  4. Health Services Research

Current Research Involvement

  1. Genetic epidemiology studies
    1. Genetic isolate populations
      We have established cohort studies recruiting families / extended pedigrees and measuring a wide range of quantitative traits of public health importance in the Dalmatian islands, Croatia and in Orkney island, Scotland. We have also established a research collaboration linking 5 genetic isolate populations throughout Europe (EUROSPAN).

      Research areas
      • QTL mapping on wide variety of disease-related traits
      • Population genetics characterisation of isolate populations
      • Inbreeding depression effects on late-onset traits
    2. Contribution to other collaborative genetic epidemiology studies
      • Scottish Family Health Study (Generation Scotland)
      • Member of many international GWAS consortia
  2. Colorectal cancer genetics (together with Prof Malcolm Dunlop and colorectal cancer genetics group at MRC Human Genetics Unit)
    We have recruited about 4,000 patients with colorectal cancer in Scotland, 1,400 of these with early onset (under 55 years of age). We have also recruited population and family based controls and environmental exposure /survival / clinical data (SOCCS study)

    Research areas include
    1. Epidemiology of mismatch repair gene mutations
      • Prevalence, penetrance, modifiers etc
    2. Identification of novel genetic variants
      • Candidate gene / association approach
      • Genome wide screen / association approach - Exome sequencing
      • Field synopses of colorectal adenoma / carcinoma genetics
  3. Glycomic epidemiology studies
    We have undertaken GWAS studies of plasma and IgG N-glycans and associated follow on studies in disease cohorts. - current funded projects include
    • IBD BIOM - inflammatory disease glycomics
    • MIMOmics -
    • High GLYCAN
  4. International Health
    I have long standing interests in several aspects of childhood respiratory infections in developing countries - epidemiology, prevention and treatment. - current funded projects include:

    • WHO / UNICEF Child Health Epidemiology Reference Group (now Maternal and Child health Estimation and Evaluation group
    • Improving Coverage Measurement in MNCH (ICM) Core Group
    • RSV Global Estimation Network
    • Optimal use of clinical signs for diagnosis and prognosis of childhood pneumonia

Other Responsibilities/Activities
