Research Fellows

Mrs Natasha Kurtiss

Tash is an MD student in the Urinary System Physiology Unit. She works with Dr. Scott Wildman and Professor Jonathon Duckett (Medway NHS Trust) investigating the bladder microbiome in OAB patients.

Mrs Aswini Balachandran

Aswini is an MD student in the Urinary System Physiology Unit. She works with Dr. Scott Wildman and Professor Jonathon Duckett (Medway NHS Trust) investigating urinary tract infections in OAB patients.

PhD Students

Rebecca Lilley
Rebecca Lilley

Rebecca is a PhD student in the Urinary System Physiology Unit.  She is supervised by Dr Claire Peppiatt-Wildman. She is investigating the role of P2X7 ion channels in tubular and vascular renal injury in glomerulonephritis (GN) and hypertension5.

Louise Krska
 

Louise Krska

Louise is trying to identify species of bacteria unique to OAB patients which may be causative. We are also investigating the molecular mechanisms of cytokines and ATP signalling which may lead to the associated symptoms of OAB. With this we would like to design a diagnostic test which can distinguish OAB from other disease states with a vision of treating this common disease. She is supervoced by Dr. Scott Wildman.

 

Kirsti Robertson
Kirsti Robertson

Kirsti is supervised by Claire Peppiatt-Wildman. Her project aims to develop a new renal model that will incorporate isolated renal structures with microfluidics on a chip. The model will then be used in conjunction with existing renal models to investigate the role of inflammatory signalling pathways in renal disease

 

 

holly courtneidge
Miss Holly Courtneidge (jointly affiliated)

Holly is a PhD student in the Urinary System Physiology Unit.  She is supervised by Dr Claire Peppiatt-Wildman and Dr Andrew Hall (UCL).  Holly is elucidating mechanisms of drug nephrotoxicity.

 

 

gary mabbut
Mr Gary Mabbutt

Gary obtained a first-class honours degree in Biochemistry from London Metropolitan University in 2013. His PhD project utilises the live kidney slice model developed in our group, in combination with imaging techniques, to determine the cellular mechanisms of lithium-induced nephrotoxicity. Gary is co-supervised by Drs Mike Delaney and Chris Farmer (consultant nephrologists) at Kent Canterbury Hospital.
