Profile

Becky completed her degree in Biomedical Science in 2005 and continued at The University of Hull to complete a Ph.D. Her Ph.D. involved identification of peptide sequences which bind to MRSA for targeted photodynamic therapy of chronic wounds.

Her current research involves investigation of the endothelial response, microparticles and heat shock proteins under normal, stressed and diseased states and the potential role of exercise/diet in preconditioning to attenuate the response. Her research interests also include investigation of expression of cell surface antigens as potential biomarkers of inflammation and decompression illness.
