Obtained his undergraduate degree in Neurobiology from the University of Sussex (1978) and his PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Glasgow (1982). He held post-doctoral positions at the University of Edinburgh and the University of Sheffield before winning a Royal Society University Research Fellowship in 1986 which he held until 1996 at the Universities of Edinburgh and Manchester.

He is currently a Senior Lecturer in Neuroscience at The University of Manchester, Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society. He runs an active research group investigating two research areas, the role of cerebrospinal fluid in the development of the cerebral cortex, and the hard-wired relationship between neural and immune systems.

His research has had funding from the Wellcome Trust, Medical research Council, BBSRC, Association for spina bifida and hydrocephalus, the Charles Wolfson Charitable Trust and from the British Council INSPIRE Scheme. He is joint owner of a patent through the University of Manchester for his work on hydrocephalus which gives the first hope for a preventative treatment for this condition. He has won awards for the introduction of innovative teaching methods to Biological Sciences on the problem-based learning model and is involved in implementing PBL into the graduate training program.
