I am employed by Cardiff University UK as Director of the Common Cold Centre which conducts clinical trials on new treatments for common cold and flu. We have conducted many studies for Bayer on Aspirin treatments and on other analgesics for other pharmaceutical companies. My main interest is in the understanding of the symptoms of common cold and flu and how these symptoms can be measured in clinical trials. My expertise is in physiology and pharmacology with special interest in diseases of the upper airway.
