Dr George Robinson

Congratulations to Dr George Robinson, Postdoctoral research fellow (Centre for Rheumatology) in the department of Inflammation in the Division of Medicine. 

Following his PhD and postdoctoral studies within the Centre for Rheumatology at UCL, George has been awarded a 5-year Versus Arthritis Career Development Fellowship for his project 'The role of CD8+ T-cells and type-I IFN in juvenile-SLE and accelerated atherosclerosis'.  

This multidisciplinary project will span across the Centre for Adolescent Rheumatology and the Centre for Cardiometabolic and Vascular Science at UCL, with international collaborations with leading Rheumatology and Cardiovascular disease researchers. Through this project, George aims to improve long term cardiovascular disease outcomes for young patients with juvenile-SLE. 

"I am over the moon, and would like to say a huge thank you to my current supervisor Professor Liz Jury, my fellowship sponsors Dr Coziana Ciurtin and Professor Ines Pineda Torra, and also to Professor Derek Gilroy, Professor David Abraham and to all other members of the division that helped me to prepare. The support has been fantastic! I am really looking forward to starting this new project!"
