Colin trained in biochemistry at the University of Liverpool, Harvard Medical School and Imperial College, London and has been a scientist with NIBSC since 1989. Here he has worked in the area of haemostasis and particularly fibrinolysis to develop International Standards for the World Health Organisation (WHO). Colin’s research interests are centred on enzymology and the regulation of fibrinolysis, recently including the effects of Neutrophil Extracellular Traps (NETs) of DNA and histones incorporated into fibrin clots. A full list of Colin’s publications and recent work can be found on his Researcher ID and ORCID ID pages.
