    Reasons for becoming a Governor

    I was appointed as a governor to represent the University of Liverpool.
    My interest in the Liverpool Women’s Hospital started long time ago when I received excellent perinatal care, and continued through my research in obstetric and reproductive medicine. I would like to contribute to the efforts of all staff members at the hospital to care for the health of women, babies and their families and to enrich their experience in every area.


    I am a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Molecular and Clinical Pharmacology at the University of Liverpool. I teach pharmacology to science and medical students and do research with special interest in pharmacogenomics and personalised medicine. 
    As a university researcher I represent the scientists, but also a broader academic community.

    What are you passionate about?

    I am passionate about good quality clinical and basic science research aimed at improving drug efficacy and safety to maximise benefits and minimise harm to the patients from prescribed medicines. I am also passionate about the excellent education and training of students and general public on health issues. The strength of conducting cutting-edge clinical research is to enable us to bring the benefits to the patients faster than ever before.
