Dr Stratton trained in rheumatology as a registrar at Guys Hospital before moving to the Royal Free initially as an MD clinical research fellow in 1995 under the supervision of Professor Carol Black and Professor Jeremy Pearson, and then worked as senior registrar at the Royal Free. In addition he was a visiting research fellow at FibroGen California under Professor George Martin, studying the regulation of pro-fibrotic growth factors in scleroderma. Subsequently he completed a PhD thesis working with Professor David Abraham and was appointed as a consultant in our unit at the Royal Free and has continued to study the mechanisms underlying fibrosis in scleroderma focusing on the role of epithelial cells which have a key role in promoting the skin fibrosis in the disease, and now supervises PhD and clinical research fellows in the Centre for Rheumatology. He has a clinical interest in inflammatory rheumatic diseases and is also a consultant general physician as part of the acute medical rota at the Royal Free.
