Scott graduated with BSc (Honours) Pharmacology in 2019 and again with MSc Clinical Pharmacology in 2020 from the University of Aberdeen, UK. He is currently investigating the roll of oxidative and electrophilic stress in skin sensitisation.

2015 – 2019: BSc (Hons) Pharmacology, University of Aberdeen, UK.

2019 – 2020: MSc Clinical Pharmacology, University of Aberdeen, UK.

2020 – Present: PhD in Biological Sciences, University of Southampton, UK.

Research interests

During his BSc, Scott engaged in research that investigated the role of Cannabinoid Receptor 2 in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukaemia, and the potential for allosteric modulators of CB2 to aid treatment. He wrote his Honours dissertation on the contribution of Oxytocin Receptor 1 to the female bias of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension.

His Masters dissertation was a systematic review on the ability of the monoclonal antibody, Dupilumab, to reduce the required dose of corticosteroids to treat Severe Allergic Asthma.

He is currently investigating the role of oxidative and electrophilic stress in forming antigens that contribute to skin sensitisation and hypersensitivity.
