Kim Midwood received a Certificate in Advanced Learning and Teaching from the Imperial College in 2011, a Ph.D. degree from Edinburgh University in 1999, and B.S. degree from the same university in 1995. His academic posts include being a Senior Lecturer at Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Oxford University, since 2011, a Senior Lecturer at Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Imperial College, since 2011, a Lecturer at Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology, Imperial College, from 2004 to 2011, and a Research Fellow at the Department of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, from 1999 to 2004. His research interests include having a long-standing interest in defining the molecular mechanisms underlying a successful response to tissue injury and understanding how these are compromised in repair-related diseases. The research in his group focuses on investigating how extracellular matrix molecules that are specifically induced upon tissue damage play a pivotal role in regulating cell phenotype during tissue repair and how these danger signals lead to the perpetuation of inflammation and tissue deposition during autoimmune and fibrotic diseases.
