Dr Jessica Teeling
Neuroinflammation and infection
Professor in Experimental Neuroimmunology

 Theme Group:


Jessica Teeling is a professor in Experimental Neuroimmunology within Biological Sciences at the University of Southampton. Her research focuses on understanding the immune regulatory pathways in the healthy, diseased and ageing central nervous system (CNS). Her group studies the effect of antibody mediated inflammation in the CNS, and how these responses may contribute to the pathogenesis of neuroinflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, age related macular degeneration and systemic lupus erythematosis. She is particularly interested in the role of Fcgamma receptors and microglial activation.

BRAIN AI: Biomarker Research Assessing Inflammation in Neurodegeneration using Artificial Intelligence

Dementia diagnosis is complex and subjective, especially in the early stages of the disease. It takes on average over 2 years from symptom onset to diagnosis. Inflammation is seen as a driver leading to accelerated …

Diagnostic biomarkers of gut microbiome-associated phenotypes predictive of healthy aging and neurodegenerative disease (BIO-AGE)

The gastrointestinal tract in humans is one of the largest interfaces between the host and the environment. Different bacteria in the gut have been linked with longevity and healthy ageing. However, some of these bacteria …

Permeability of the blood-brain barrier in Alzheimer’s disease (PEBBAL) measured using dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI: a pilot study

Inflammation is the body’s normal response to injury and infection. It can be healthy or harmful depending on the situation. We know that when people with dementia get infections their memory symptoms can get worse. …
