All Welcome

Georgia Perona-Wright is a Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Infection, Immunity & Inflammation at the University of Glasgow. She is interested in the balance between immune protection and immunopathology, and particularly how cytokines influence this balance. Her work uses a number of infections and co-infections, including parasitic, bacterial and viral pathogens, and her research questions involve cytokine biology, immune regulation and immuno-metabolism. She moved to Glasgow in 2016 from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada; before then, she was a postdoctoral scientist at the Trudeau Institute in upstate New York, and at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. She has a love of wild spaces and an inescapable affinity for Bolton Wanderers Football Club (it’s normally better not to mention the second one). Her website: http://peronalab.uk
