Summary

 

Summary

Chloe gained her BSc (Hons) in Biomedical Science at Kings College London, and after graduating worked for two years as a Research Scientist for a contract research company, using models of inflammatory disease to progress novel compounds from hit identification through to lead optimization. In 2015 she came to Imperial College and worked for four years as Research Assistant to Dr James Harker.

During her time in the Harker lab she focused on two main areas of research:

  • The role of IL-6 in regulating the immune response to Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)
  • The regulation of antibody production in early life, particularly in RSV infection

In 2018 she joined Dr Robert Snelgrove's lab, and currently works on investigating the opposing roles of  LTA4H - an enzyme with both pro-inflammatory (LTB4 generation) and anti-inflammatory (PGP degradation) activity - in dictating neutrophilic inflammation.
