Anna Ridley

Postdoctoral Researcher

My research focuses on investigating the phenotype and function of T cells from patients with Ankylosing Spondylitis and other inflammatory arthritidies. I am using cellular techniques to examine Th17 cells and identify factors predicting a positive outcome to treatment, thereby allowing treatments to be tailored to individuals. I joined Paul Bownness's group in 2009 as a research assistant and undertook my DPhil at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine.

In addition to carrying out my research I am the designated individual looking after the Human Tissue Act and Health and Safety issues for the group.

Prior to joining the group I trained as a Clinical Scientist in Immunology at Southampton General Hospital and then was involved in clinical trials monitoring at Oxford BioMedica.
