Angus is a KTRR/ARUK career development fellow with a group within the Centre for OA pathogenesis at the Kennedy Institute, University of Oxford.

It has now become evident that the machinery associated with the primary cilium is critical to metazoan life and the development of multiple mammalian organ systems. The ciliopathies are defining the ciliome, unveiling its influence over the musculoskeletal system development. We are exploring its roles in adult tissues and the disease context.

Audience - talk mostly about the cytokine work we are doing in context of inflammatory biology but then move talk towards OA work too so some basic cell biology, signalling and microscopy, bit of mouse and maybe some human translational work.
