Personal profile


Poulomi obtained her PhD degree in neurobiology from India in 2017 before joining Prof. Siddharthan Chandran’s lab as a postdoctoral researcher at the UK Dementia Research Institute, University of Edinburgh. 

Research Interest 

Although amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is characterised by progressive loss of motor neurons, emerging evidence has led to the identification of neuroinflammation and activated microglial pathology as universal features of ALS. To this end, Poulomi’s research interest is focussed on understanding the cellular and molecular basis of neuroinflammation in ALS. Through a combination of human-based model systems (e.g., patient stem cell-derived cultures, patient blood-derived macrophages and autopsy samples), Poulomi’s research seeks to better understand the nature and impact of dysregulated microglial pathways on motor neuron health in inherited forms of ALS.
