Allan’s research has focused on identifying a key role for osteoprotegerin/TRAIL pathway in the pathogenesis of PAH. Supported by Fellowships and grants from the MRC and BHF he has recently developed a novel human therapeutic antibody targeting this pathway. Allan also works closely with clinical colleagues locally, nationally and internationally to identify biomarkers and utilise multi-omic approaches for molecular phenotyping, identifying novel disease mechanisms and drug targets.
