the UK Translational Research Network in Dermatology (UK TREND).
Phil is a Professor and Consultant in Cellular Pathology at Newcastle Upon Tyne
Hospitals (NUTH) NHS Foundation Trust. Philip has research interests in oral cancer,
oral genetic disorders and sentinel node pathology. His specialist practice includes
Head and Neck pathology, Bone and Soft tissue pathology and Dermatopathology. He
is co-lead of the Newcastle MRC Molecular Node. Philip has published over 250 papers
and several textbooks.
Dina is Senior Lecturer in the Institute of Cellular Medicine at Newcastle University and
the Training Lead for the Newcastle Molecular Pathology Node. She is a Consultant
Histopathologist and an internationally recognized expert in liver pathology. She is an
invited member of the International Liver Study Group “Gnomes”, the Laennec Liver
Pathology Society and holds an appointment as Assoc. Professor at the Medical
School, National & Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece.
Dina is President-Elect of the European Society of Pathology. Her main research
interest is fatty liver disease and hepatocarcinogenesis but she has also published in
other areas of liver, gastrointestinal and tumour pathology. She has
authored/co-authored >120 peer-reviewed scientic articles and chapters in
textbooks of liver pathology and histology. Dr Tiniakos serves as member of the
Editorial Board of “Liver International” and “Histopathology”, is reviewer for major
hepatology and gastroenterology journals, and external assessor for European
research grant awarding bodies.
Angela is the Chief Executive for NewGene. Established through a partnership
between the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Newcastle
University, NewGene is a pioneer in developing, validating and delivering molecular
diagnostics using the latest high throughput sequencing and genotyping
Natalio is a Professor of Computing Science at Newcastle University. He is the co-director of Newcastle's Interdisciplinary Computing and Complex BioSystems (ICOS) Research Group and the Director of the Centre for Synthetic Biology and Bioexploitation.
Natalio's research activities lie at the interface of Computing Science and the Natural Sciences. He applies his expertise on Machine Intelligence (e.g. optimisation, data mining, big data, evolutionary learning), Complex Systems and Unconventional Computing (e.g. biocomputing) to Bioinformatics, Systems and Synthetic Biology).
Phil is a Lecturer in Diagnostic and Therapeutic Technologies at Newcastle University. His research is centered on the design and development of sensor based solutions for biomedical applications and is comprised of two central strands:
A) Development of multi-analyte sensor array platforms for direct, simultaneous intra- and extra-cellular in-vitro monitoring of reactive oxygen species. This work involves the integration of optical and chronoamperometric technologies. The resulting integrated array format enables real-time and continues analysis of ROS initiated events that originate within discrete cellular population.
B) Development of integrated electrochemical and bio-microelectromechanical (bio-MEMS) sensors for application to point-of-care diagnosis of disease processes.
Kate supports the day-to-day operation of the project by liaising across partner organisations and through effective management of financial, risk and administrative tasks.
