Lecture Title: A systems biology and computational modelling approach to inflammatory skin disease
Nick Reynolds is Professor of Dermatology in Newcastle where he leads multi-disciplinary clinics for patients with severe psoriasis and atopic eczema. After qualifying in medicine from the University of London, he received his dermatology and academic training in Bristol, Ann Arbor Michigan, USA and Newcastle upon Tyne.
He has developed an interest in applying systems biology and computational modelling approaches to understanding the mechanism of action of therapeutic agents in psoriasis and atopic eczema, and predicting individual patient outcomes. He has been closely involved with BADBIR (British Association of Dermatologists Biologics and Immunomodulators Register) since its inception and has chaired the Research Committee since 2009. As work-strand lead in a multi-centre stratified medicine programme – PSORT (Psoriasis Stratification to Optimise Relevant Therapy), he has contributed particularly to transcriptomic and systems analyses as well as working closely with patient groups. In 2016, he was appointed Director of Newcastle’s MRC/EPSRC Molecular Pathology Node, one of six units established in the UK to bring researchers, clinicians and industry together to develop molecular diagnostic tools for personalized medicine.
He was the inaugural Chair of UK TREND (Translational Research Network in Dermatology), is a board member of the International Eczema Council and is past president of the European Society for Dermatological Research (ESDR).
