Editor's profile

Paul Kirkham

Paul Kirkham

Dr Paul Kirkham completed his first degree in Biochemistry at Leeds University. He then went on to receive a PhD in Biochemistry from Surrey University in 1989. Between 1989 and 1998 he joined the laboratories of Dr Michael Parkhouse as a postdoctoral staff scientist, working on mechanisms of B and T cell activation in the Department of Immunology at the MRC National Institute for Medical Research before moving to the BBSRC Institute for Animal Health. In 1998 he moved into industry and joined Novartis, where as a Lab Head he led a team undertaking drug discovery into respiratory diseases. He returned to academia in 2008 after being awarded a Royal Society Industry Fellowship and joined the staff at the National Heart and Lung Institute within Imperial College London, where he currently remains as a Senior Fellow. His research interests focus on unravelling the role oxidative stress plays in modulating cellular and immune responses in disease pathogenesis, particularly in relation to respiratory disease.

Adriano Rossi

Adriano G Rossi

Professor Rossi obtained a BSc (Hons) and PhD (under the supervision of Drs Euan MacIntyre and Rodger McMillan) in the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Glasgow. He then carried out postdoctoral research at Wake Forest University, Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA in Professor Joseph O’Flaherty’s laboratory. When he returned to the UK he was awarded a Wellcome Trust Post-Doctoral grant that led to a lectureship in Professor Tim William’s department at the National Heart & Lung Institute, University of London. He subsequently joined Professor Chris Haslett’s Respiratory Medicine Unit at the University of Edinburgh as an MRC funded senior scientist. He currently holds a Personal Chair in Respiratory and Inflammation Pharmacology in the MRC Centre for Inflammation Research at the Queen’s Medical Research Institute at the University of Edinburgh. He was awarded a DSc from the University in 2010 and is a Fellow of the Society of Biology and a Fellow of the British Pharmacological Society.

His research involves investigating the cellular processes and signalling mechanisms controlling inflammation with a focus on understanding inflammation resolution especially the mechanisms regulating apoptosis and phagocyte recognition and phagocytosis of apoptotic cells. He has published over 180 articles in peer-reviewed journals, reviews and book chapters and has held several major research grants. He believes that his team will provide the scientific foundation for innovative approaches for the therapy of human inflammatory diseases.
