I am a postdoctoral researcher in Dr David Hunt's lab based in the UK Dementia Research Institute. My research question is 'How does innate immune activation affect the brain?'.  The aim is to understand how this is relevant in diseases of chronic inflammation with neurological dysfunction, including rare monogenic disease and complex autoimmune disease. Identifying the cellular targets of pathogenic inflammation in the brain may lead to a better understanding of how to treat or prevent immune-mediated neurological disease.
