I continued this work as an industry funded postdoctoral research associate looking at the effects of a commercial compound on nematode chemoreception. I spent 2 years working as a postdoctoral research associate at Washington University School of Medicine looking at the role of the presynaptic protein, Rim in exocytosis and localisation to the synaptic membrane, in the free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. On returning to the UK in 2002, I worked on drug resistance in parasitic nematodes and the role of chemosensory mutations in resistance at the University of Bristol.
