Before I moved away from active/lab research, I published and contributed to some:

PhD Thesis

Investigating the effects of Chromosome 21 genes on pathological angiogenesis

Since people—usually annoying internet men—sometimes ask for “proof” I have a doctorate. There you go, knock yourself out.

Baker M, Robinson SD, Lechertier T et al. (2012)
Use of the mouse aortic ring assay to study angiogenesis.
Nat Protoc vol. 7, (1) 89-104.

Germain M, De Arcangelis A, Robinson SD et al. (2010) 
Genetic ablation of the alpha 6-integrin subunit in Tie1Cre mice enhances tumour angiogenesis. 
J Pathol vol. 220, (3) 370-381.

Baker M, Reynolds LE, Robinson SD et al. (2013)
Stromal Claudin14-heterozygosity, but not deletion, increases tumour blood leakage without affecting tumour growth
PLoS One 10.1371/journal.pone.0062516

Reynolds LE, Watson AR, Baker M et al. (2010) 
Tumour angiogenesis is reduced in the Tc1 mouse model of Down’s syndrome. 
Nature vol. 465, (7299) 813-817.10.1038/nature09106

Robinson SD, Reynolds LE, Kostourou V et al. (2009)
Alphav beta3 integrin limits the contribution of neuropilin-1 to vascular endothelial growth factor-induced angiogenesis.
J Biol Chem vol. 284, (49) 33966-33981.

You can read about some of these subjects in this series over at Cancer Research UK, which I wrote some of the pieces for, which hopefully makes some sense regardless of your background!

I wrote a legend to accompany this pretty image (taken by my supervisor) that we submitted for a JBC cover, successfully!

Retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) assay. This assay involves depriving the retinal tissue of oxygen to induce angiogenic responses to hypoxia (activation of quiescent blood vessels)…
