Jennifer Marshall is a post-doctoral research fellow working in Prof Chris Buckley’s group in the Institute of Inflammation and Ageing.

She is currently investigating altered metabolism in the rheumatic joint with an intention to provide better disease outcomes. Her previous post-doctoral work and PhD studies concentrated on B cell responses; how they respond to different antigens in vitro and in vivo. This encompassed vaccine design, aging and B cell differentiation.


  • PhD in Immunology
  • BSc (Hons) in Natural Sciences (Genetics)
