Sarah Howard is a Postgraduate Research Student at Southampton General Hospital, looking at the role of tau and systemic inflammation in Alzheimer’s Disease.

Academic Qualifications

2012-2016: BSc Biomedical Sciences. UCL, UK.

Research interests

I am interested in looking at the role of neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s Disease, particularly in terms of how it may alter the spread and accumulation of tau pathology.

My previous undergraduate research at UCL focused on the homeostasis of microglial morphology through potassium leak channels. Prior to this, my summer internship at UCL Institute of Neuroinflammation involved examining the role of hypoxia in a rat model of multiple sclerosis.

PhD Research: Investigating the role of neuroinflammation on the accumulation and spread of tau pathology.
