Wedderburn, Lucy

Adolescent Rheumatology


Lucy Wedderburn is Professor in Paediatric Rheumatology at UCL (Institute of Child Health), Director of Arthritis Research UK Centre for Adolescent Rheumatology at UCL, and UCL Hospitals/GOSH consultant. Her research interests are T cell immunology, immune regulation and muscle biology, with a major focus upon human T cell responses and immune regulation. In particular, the autoimmune conditions of childhood, including Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) and Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM); the mechanisms which allow survival and expansion of inflammatory T cells within the joint, the control of their production of cytokines and chemokines, and their contribution to disease. In tandem we study immune regulation and how this influences disease course and phenotype in JIA.

She trained in Cambridge and then London in Immunology and Rheumatology and then spent time training in science at the University of Stanford, USA, before returning to University College London and Great Ormond Street Hospital on a Wellcome Trust Fellowship.
