Damian Jenkins


Defence Medical Services Neurologist

Damian is a Fellow in Medicine at St Hugh's College and the Armed Forces' Senior Registrar in Neurology.

He works in the lab of Prof Gabriele De Luca exploring the mechanisms that drive neurodegeneration in traumatic brain injury (TBI). His research especially focuses on the role of the blood brain barrier (BBB) and the state of microglial activation in the ongoing loss of neurons following head trauma.

With others of Prof De Luca's team, Damian also explores the overlap between various neurodegenerative disorders with the aim of discovering novel treatment targets that work across diseases.
