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
