Jennifer Imm

Research Fellow +44(0)1392-406764 Jennifer joined the group in 2015 to undertake her PhD under the supervision of Professor Katie Lunnon. During her PhD she characterised the epigenetic changes that occur in iPSC-neuronal and microglial models when they are exposed to AD-relevant exposures, such as differentiation and maturation, drug treatment and immune challenge. Since completing her […]

Student led Alzheimer’s project grants get seal of approval.

Pilot research awards have been awarded to PhD researchers Matt and Adam respectively by the recently established Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) Southwest Network. Both studies aim to improve our current understanding of the dynamic epigenetic landscape and its association with the onset and progression of Alzheimer’s pathology. Matt’s grant will focus on the expression of […]
