Viral Psuedotype Unit, Medway School of Pharmacy, University of Kent, Central Avenue, Chatham Maritme, ME4 4TB, UK.


Following completion of his PhD, Simon conducted postdoctoral studies in virology in Cambridge and Amsterdam, before entering his current research field of cancer gene therapy, working at institutes in Manchester and London. He then took up a faculty position at Wayne State University in Michigan, USA, for three years, where he continued his research and taught on various postgraduate courses. He returned to the UK in 2004, working briefly at Sheffield University and joining the Medway School of Pharmacy in June 2006.

Simon teaches molecular biology, genetics, virology, vaccines/antiviral drugs, cancer biology and gene therapy on the MPharm degree course at the School, both in the classroom and laboratory. He will also teach on the new MSc Applied Drug Discovery course, covering subjects such as molecular pharmacology, laboratory skills, study design, translational virology and supervision of lab-based research projects . He was directly involved in the design and setup of the custom-refurbished biological sciences laboratories at MSoP, and annually supervises a number of 4th year research project students in the labs. He has supervised a successful MSc student on a gene therapy/molecular biology 3 year research project, and is now a supervisor for two PhD students studying different RNA viruses.
