The Inflammasome Lab welcomes Mark Milner!

In April this year the Inflammasome Lab had the pleasure of welcoming Mark Milner to the group. Mark joins the lab for his PhD and will explore the importance of inflammasome activation in Alzheimer's disease.

 

From Mark: “I am absolutely delighted to have joined such a wonderful team of people, who are researchers at the cutting edge of their field. They have all been so welcoming to me and made me feel part of the lab as soon as I arrived. I am looking forward to spending the next few years here and contributing to the pool of knowledge already being produced in the lab!”

 

Mark's Bio: Mark obtained a First Class Honours degree in Biomedical Science from Trinity College Dublin, Ireland, in 2018. After his Bachelor’s degree, Mark worked as a Research Assistant in Prof. Lynch’s neuroimmunology lab in the Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience (TCIN), where he was investigating the impact of iron accumulation on inflammasome activation in microglia, as well as contributing to other projects researching ageing and Alzheimer’s disease.
