Caroline WilsonRole: Principal Investigator Email: email@example.com
I am a Newcastle University Research Fellow with research interests including the the role of the NF-kB subunit p50 as an inflammatory regulator in inflammation and cancer and understanding neutrophil heterogeneity and its tumour promoting role in Hepatocellular Carcinoma.
I have an academic background in Immunology having been trained at Newcastle University before completing my PhD in the Musculoskeletal Research in 2011 where I developed a system to study the presentation of a candidate joint autoantigen by antigen-specific B cells.
In my present role, I work with spontaneous age-related liver damage and cancer (nfkb1-/-) and carcinogen (DEN) cancer models to understand how the immune compartment is manipulated to support tumour development and spread.
