Biography 

Professor Lord is director of the University of Birmingham’s Centre for Healthy Ageing Research and is also head of the University’s Centre for Translational Inflammation Research.

Prof Lord’s research focuses on the innate immune system, the body’s front-line defence against infection, and how the efficiency of this system is affected by ageing and stress, the latter including physical trauma and emotional stress such as bereavement. In all of her work she aims to translate research findings into interventions, whether lifestyle or pharmacological, to improve immunity.

Prof Lord is one of SRMRC’s theme leads for Acute Response to Injury.
