Daniel Dimmock is an Academic Associate in the Biochemistry team, who teaches on several modules within undergraduate and postgraduate Bioscience courses whilst performing their own PhD research project.
Under the supervision of Dr Carl Nelson, Daniel is researching intercellular microRNA signaling through the toll-like receptors (TLRs) 7 & 8. He is researching its involvement in the pathogenesis of asthma and the immune response to respiratory infections.
His research uses a combination of tissue culturing, proteomics, colorimetric assays, fluorescent microscopy, bioinformatics, and transfection. He aims to discover the role specific microRNAs can play as direct recruiters of TLR 7 & 8 immune response and inflammation.
