Award winner Sarah McGlasson

Oct 2018: Congratulations to postdoctoral researcher Sarah McGlasson, who has won the Elsevier / US-UK Fulbright Commission 2018 UK Early Career Researcher Award in Medicine.

Sarah was one of six early-career researchers who received an award at a ceremony in London last week.

As part of their joint mission to support young researchers in developing their careers, Elsevier and the US-UK Fulbright Commission have partnered in hosting the awards since 2011. Winners of these awards are chosen by an expert panel of judges, drawing on citation and publication information from Elsevier’s Scopus database.

Sarah McGlasson is a postdoctoral researcher in the lab of one of the Anne Rowling Clinic consultant neurologists, Dr David Hunt. Sarah's particular research interest is how excessive type I interferon (IFN) causes damage to cerebral blood vessels, in order to understand how blood vessels become damaged in autoimmune disease such as lupus. Her research aims to understand more about the effect of IFN on blood vessels in the brain.
