B.Sc. (Hons), Ph.D.


Postdoctoral Researcher in Inflammatory Neuropathy

Biography

Alex graduated from the University of Manchester with a PhD in neurophysiology before becoming an NRF Research Fellow at Seoul National University in South Korea where he led research into immune mechanisms of axon degeneration after peripheral nerve injury. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher in inflammatory neuropathy at the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience where he is developing in vitro assays to model human neuro-immune interactions.


Alex was recently awarded funding from the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre for a pilot study into immune function in patients recovering from nerve injury.
