The University of Glasgow is delighted to host Professor Sarah Marshall, the Wellcome Trust's Head of Clinical and Physiological Sciences on 7th November 2019 at 1pm in the Yudowitz Lecture Theatre, Wolfson Medical School Building.

She obtained her medical degree from the National University of Ireland and worked as a junior doctor in Dublin before going to Stanford University, California as a fellow in Lung Transplantation. She completed her training in clinical immunology in 1998 and has a PhD from the University of Cambridge in Immune Tolerance. She held an MRC Clinician Scientist award at the University of Oxford and was then a Clinical Senior Lecturer at Imperial College where her research interests focused on the genetics of transplantation and inflammatory diseases.
