Sarah Crisp did her clinical training and PhD at the University of Cambridge through the MB/PhD programme. She then completed foundation and core medical training in the East on England before entering specialty training in neurology. With a clinical interest in autoimmune encephalitis, she took time out of training to undertake a Wellcome Trust funded postdoctoral research fellowship in Prof Dimitri Kullmann’s lab at University College London. There she used whole cell patch clamp techniques to investigate the pathogenic mechanisms of glycine receptor antibodies. She is now a Clinical Lecturer in Neurology with research interest in antibody mechanisms in neurological disease.
Our goal is to understanding of the mechanisms underlying neurological diseases associated with autoantibodies. See our current projects here.
