'Motile cilia dysfunction in chronic lung disease: a moving story'
Dr Amelia Shoemark completed her PhD at Imperial College London in 2010. She is Lead Clinical Scientist at the Royal Brompton Hospital for the diagnosis of primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD). Her translational research interests, funded by the NIHR, brought new diagnostic tests for PCD with improved sensitivity. These include the development of a clinically validated panel of immunofluorescent antibodies, development of 3D electron microscopy and, with collaborators, the identification of more than 10 of the genes now known to cause PCD. Recently, Dr Shoemark joined the University of Dundee to conduct research into bronchiectasis, supported by the British Lung Foundation.
Her talk will discuss advanced diagnostic investigations for the inherited condition primary ciliary dyskinesia and the application of these to other chronic respiratory diseases
