Dr Andrew Paul

Senior Lecturer

Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences

Personal statement

Andy holds a Senior Lectureship position in the Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Strathclyde and has 20 years experience of research and teaching across the Biomedical Science (BMS) and Pharmacy (MPharm) programmes related to application of protein biochemistry and molecular pharmacology, in the context of cellular signalling, to health and disease. Andy is a graduate of the University of Glasgow (BSc (Hons) Biochemistry; 1986-1990) and completed his second degree (PhD Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, 1990-1993) at the University of Glasgow in association with the Wellcome Foundation, Beckenham.

The work in Andy's research lab focusses on the role of the inhibitory kappaB kinases (IKKs) in the regulation of both Nuclear Factor kappaB (NFkappaB)-dependent and -independent transcription in mediating inflammatory-based responses relevant to infection, regulation of immunity, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
