Dr Madeleine Cunningham
- Research Associate (Immunology & Infection)
I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 2010 with a First Class BSc (Hons) in Pharmacology. Following on from this I began an MRC-funded 1+3 programme, providing me with a MRes in Integrative mammalian biology and a PhD in the lab of Professor Hugh Willison, in which I studied the autoimmune neuropathy Guillain-Barré syndrome.
I continue to work on this rare condition in my postdoctoral career, where we aim to characterise the pathological mechanisms driving nerve damage.
I have a particular interest in fluorescent, confocal and two-photon microscopy to visualise changes in the nervous system in response to autoimmune injury.
Grants and Awards listed are those received whilst working with the University of Glasgow.
