A brief description of who you are and what you do.
This section will only display on your public profile if you’ve added content.
You can update this in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading and then ‘Curriculum and research description’, select ‘Add profile information’. In the dropdown menu, select - ‘About’.
Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.
You’ll be able to add details about your research, publications, career and academic history to other sections of your staff profile.
- Delphine serves on a range of neuroscience research projects focusing on neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration.
- Her main research interest is to develop a greater understanding of the role of neuroinflammation in relation with ageing, neurological diseases and systemic inflammation, using the approaches of human brain analysis. Her research focuses on microglia, the immune cells of the brain, where she has developed protocols to immunophenotype microglia in humans using markers relating to a specific function allowing us to investigate the role of these cells in different neurological conditions.
- Her work is located at the junction between clinical neurodegenerative disease, human neuropathology and experimental neuroscience where she has developed an expertise in neuroimmunopathology
Delphine serves as PI and Co-PI on a range of neuroscience research projects focusing on neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration. Her current projects include:
- Immunophenotyping microglia in neurological conditions such as Alzheimer's disease, dementia with lew bodies, schizophrenia, glioblastoma
- Neuroinflammation in age-related dementia
- Exploring the impact of systemic inflammation on microglial phenotype and brain pathology
- Aβ immunotherapy in human Alzheimer's disease

Any research groups you belong to will automatically appear on your profile. Speak to your line manager if these are incorrect. Please do not raise a ticket in Ask HR.
Add up to 5 research interests. The first 3 will appear in your staff profile next to your name. The full list will appear on your research page. Keep these brief and focus on the keywords people may use when searching for your work. Use a different line for each one.
In Pure (opens in a new tab), select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading 'Curriculum and research description', select 'Add profile information'. In the dropdown menu, select 'Research interests: use separate lines'.
Update this in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’ and then ‘Curriculum and research description - Current research’.
Describe your current research in 100 to 200 words. Write in the third person. Include broad key terms to help people discover your work, for example, “sustainability” or “fashion textiles”.
Research Council funded projects will automatically appear here. The active project name is taken from the finance system.
Public outputs that list you as an author will appear here, once they’re validated by the ePrints Team. If you’re missing any outputs that you’ve added to Pure, they may be waiting for validation.
Contact your Faculty Operating Service team to update PhD students you supervise and any you’ve previously supervised. Making this information available will help potential PhD applicants to find you.

Delphine Boche is a Professor of Neuroimmunopathology within Medicine at the University of Southampton. Her research focuses on understanding neuroinflammation and its consequences in patients affected by neurological disease.
Delphine obtained her PhD in 1997 at Pasteur Institute, Paris France working on the AIDS encephalopathy in the FIV-cat and SIV-monkey models. She joined the University of Southampton in 1999 to study the neuroinflammation in acute and chronic neurodegenerative diseases in the group led by Prog Hugh Perry (the Centre of Biological Sciences). In 2004, she moved to the Faculty of Medicine to investigate the pathophysiology of Alzheimer’s disease in patients immunized against Aβ42, one of the main neuropathological features of this condition.
She was the recipient of a Bourse Roux (Institut Pasteur Fellowship, 1998), a European Marie Curie Individual Fellowship (2000), a MRC New Investigator Award (2006) and a Wellcome Trust Value in People (2009).
