Prof Colin Bingle
Professor of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology
Prof Colin Bingle has a long-standing research interest in cellular differentiation and regulation of gene expression within the developing and adult pulmonary epithelium. This work involves the isolation of pulmonary epithelial cell specific genes as well as the transcription factors, which regulate their expression. Over the past few years his interests have expanded into the fields of the genetics of complex diseases, pulmonary immunology, innate immunity and host defence. Over his time in Sheffield he has also come to appreciate the importance of utilising clinical material as a scientific resource and has established multiple collaborations to enable the collection and use of such samples for research.
