My research aims to improve the lives of patients living with chronic conditions; and, by extension, the lives of their carers and reduce the demand on overstretched healthcare providers. Our activities have three strands:
Diagnosis. Early detection of acute and chronic pathologies, and acute adverse events – which is accurate, inexpensive and accessible – to be used by healthcare providers, patients and carers, regardless of setting.
Therapeutics. Elucidate targets for effective treatment, very early in disease development. Informed by biomarker-based diagnosis of early disease.
Education. Change behaviours, remove barriers to patients seeking help and achieve patient-centred care.
The primary focus for these efforts has been in urological pathologies, due to the high prevalence of conditions and associated impact – to patients, carers and the NHS.
