Stuart Keppie

DPhil Student (BBSRC DTP)

Prior to Oxford, I completed my undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences with a Year in Industry at the University of East Anglia. During my degree I worked in the ImmunoInflammation Therapy Area Unit of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) for one year. My final research project was focused on investigating the wound healing process by developing a human skin platform, and testing the healing capacity of neuropeptides and inflammatory mediators on tissue repair. This work was continued after my degree as part of a fellowship from the Dr Hadwen Trust. Continuing my academic career, I was awarded a BBSRC scholarship at the University of Oxford to start a DPhil in Interdisciplinary Bioscience. After conducting a research rotation project in the Schermelleh lab group in Biochemistry, and a project in the Vincent lab group at the Kennedy Institute, I am now researching towards my DPhil investigating the behaviour of heparan sulfate-binding growth factors in cartilage under the supervision of Tonia Vincent at the Kennedy Institute.
