POSITION Lecturer/Assistant Prof in Computational Biology at the University of Ulster.
RESEARCH My research focusses principally on cholesterol metabolism and its role in cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis. I have also studied its role in innate immunity and infection. In addition, I have worked on areas of personalised and stratified medicine for cardiovascular disease and rheumatoid arthritis.

The Disease Maps Project is designed as a large-scale community effort. It is a network of groups that work together in order to better understand disease mechanisms. The project exchanges best practices, share information, develop tools to make it easier for all the involved groups to achieve their goals.

Consortium of European research groups that aim to develop - in the forthcoming 10 years - a cluster of interlinked models that describe the whole-body human energy metabolism and its multi-dimensional regulation. Regulation includes interations with the brain, the immune system and the gut.

Here we share resources and best practices to develop a disease map for COVID-19. The project is progressing as a broad community-driven effort. We aim to establish a knowledge repository on virus-host interaction mechanisms specific to the SARS-CoV-2. The COVID-19 Disease Map is an assembly of molecular interaction diagrams established based on literature evidence.
