Margaret is a Chancellor’s fellow and lecturer in pharmacology, haematology and drug discovery at Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. She trained in biochemistry and pharmacology at the University of Strathclyde and later with the Bristol Platelet Group, University of Bristol, UK.
Her research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of the involvement of G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) in the processes that underpin platelet function, anti-cancer cardiotoxicity, inflammation and pain. In addition to her research, Margaret is a keen advocate of enhancing STEM education in primary and secondary schools and is actively involved in mentoring care-experienced students as part of widening access at the university.
