Born 1966. B.Sc. (Hons) Zoology with Marine Zoology (UCNW Bangor UK, 1988); Ph.D. Physiology (Liverpool UK, 1991); SEDA Cert. in External Examining (Keele UK, 2010).

1985-88: BSc Honours degree in Zoology with Marine Zoology. Honours project (Dave Grove’s lab, Ocean Sciences, UCNW Bangor). My scientific career in gastrointestinal physiology began in 1997-8, investigating the endocrine regulation of upper gastrointestinal function in fish, using ex vivo organ strips and in vivo studies to examine gallbladder contraction and gastric emptying.

1988-91. As a research assistant in Liverpool, I gained my PhD in Physiology (Nov. 1991) in laboratory of Graham Dockray FRS (Physiology Laboratory, Liverpool), investigating the endocrine control of avian gastric and pancreatic function. This work involved in vivo models, feeding studies, endocrine cell isolation and culture; resulting in five full peer-review publications:

  • Key publications: Biochim. Biophys. Acta 1990;1048;66-71; Am J Physiol. 1991; 261;G16-G21; Eur. J. Pharmacol. 1991; 209; 231-235; Reg. Peptides 1994;49;249-255; Eur. J. Biochem. 1995;230;439-446.

    1991-94: As MRC-funded post-doctoral fellow (working in Jon Rhodes’ lab, Dept. of Medicine, Liverpool). I developed key methods, knowledge and skills in epithelial glycobiology, investigating mucus secretory cell and mucin glycoprotiens. Studies focused on the identification of oncofetal carbohydrate structures on mucins in colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease, using high-pH, high performance chromatography techniques.

  • Key publications: Biomed. Chromatogr. 1993;7,68-74; J. Chromatogr. 1993;622,137-146; J. Clin. Invest. 1995;95,571-76.

    1994-5: During a temporary teaching lectureship, held for 1 year as part of the Wellcome Trust-funded Leave fellowship awarded to Rod Dimaline (Physiology, Liverpool), I used molecular biology approaches to examine the regulation of GATA transcription factors in the gastrointestinal epithelium.

  • Key publication: Gastroenterology 1997;112,1559-1567.

    1995-2003: Appointed to a full-time academic position (Medicine, Liverpool), my independent research led to specific understanding of causes and consequences of the altered mucosal glycosylation that occurs in colorectal inflammation and neoplasia. Pioneering observations demonstated changes in mucosal carbohydrate structures resulting from altered Golgi acidification and action of cytokines. Techniques including 2-D and ex vivo tissue explants culture. I was also member of the EU Concerted Action consortium ‘Mucins in the pathophysiology of inflammatory diseases of the bronchial & gastrointestinal epithelia’ (1998-2001).

    2003-2008: Appointed to Senior Lecturer (Clinical Science, Liverpool) research focused on examination of how aberrant glycosylation could drive altered recruitment of mucosa-associated adherent bacteria seen in increased numbers in patients with Crohn’s disease and colon cancer, in particular Adherent, Invasive E. coli (AIEC). Established as one of the key international teams leading research into the host mechanisms within epithelial cells and macrophages relevant to interaction with these E. coli in Crohn’s disease (and more recently in colitis-associated colorectal cancer).

    Current Research

    The Campbell lab (in collaboration with key international groups from France and Sweden), has furthered understanding of the interaction, internalization and translocation of AIEC across microfold (M)-cells of the follicle-associated epithelium (FAE) overlying Peyer’s patches, which is dependent on possession of long polar fimbriae (Lpf). A new award from Crohn’s & Colitis UK will identify the receptor for Lpf. Adhesion between the intestinal epithelium and mucosa-associated E. coli (and various enteric gut pathogens) can also be prevented by soluble dietary plant fibres. This led to commercial partner interest with Provexis Plc to develop the therapeutic potential of soluble plantain fibre in the treatment of Crohn’s disease and infective diarrhoeas (BBSRC LINK and CASE awards to examine the role of dietary fibre in blockade of Salmonellae, ETEC and C. difficile). With funding from NIHR we have also evaluated new therapeutic approaches targeting Crohn’s associated AIEC recruitment to the inflamed mucosa (epithelial & M cells) and those replicating within the macrophage phagolysosome. Research examining intramacrophage killing of AIEC with a combination of antibiotics and hydoxychloroquine has led to a clinical trial with this treatment regimen to facilitate remission of patients with active disease. We have also been providing key insight into the mechanisms through which certain bacteria inhabitant of the intestinal microbiota could have an implication in the pathogenesis of intestinal inflammation and colorectal cancer (CRC). In collaboration with the Jobin lab UNC Chapel Hill (USA), AIEC, influenced by intestinal inflammation, appear to drive CRC progression through direct genotoxin (colibactin)-induced epithelial DNA damage. Support from NWCR, will assess if E. coli found more commonly to be interacting with the inflamed and cancerous tissue of bowel can support an environment for a transformed/pre-cancerous cell in the bowel to flourish (e.g. oncogenic NFkappaB activation, Wnt pathway activation, escaping apoptosis, promotion of cell growth and angiogenesis). Identifying which strains are deleterious and determining the specific microbial signature(s) of these strains, investigating whether carriage of specific E. coli strains is a risk factor in CRC onset and progression, and how potential ‘genotoxic’ bacteria contribute to the time-course of tumour process in bowel, will be the subject of proposals to AICR, NIH and MRC. Discovery of novel actions for microbes in the development of CRC may lead to translational interventions to modulate microbial composition and prevent tumour development, including prebiotic, probiotic and ‘contrabiotic’ (dietary supplementation with soluble plant fibre) strategies. We are also using state-of-art imaging of the inflamed and infected intestinal epithelium in vivo and in 3-D organotypic ‘mini guts’ and 3-D organoids. We have already shown that using high resolution in vivo confocal endomicroscopy it is possible to quantify bacteria on the surface and within the inflamed human intestinal epithelium. We have recently been characterizing, using confocal microscopy, epithelial cell shedding (and gap formation) in intestinal epithelia in vivo following inflammatory stimuli and will move to examination of how members of the NF-kappaB family of transcription factors regulate this process in mouse models of IBD; also whether bacteria can gain entry into these gaps. Our aim is also to be in a position to obtain detailed ultrastructural analysis of key bacterial interactions with specific gut cells using high-resolution 3D-EM coupled with the 3View system.
