Richard Cornall FMedSci FRCP
I am from the western part of the Isle of Wight. I studied at Trinity College, Cambridge, where I read medicine and biochemistry, and then to Balliol College, Oxford, where I was a clinical student. After qualifying I worked in various hospitals in London before returning to the University of Oxford to be a graduate student of John Todd, studying complex genetic disorders. My DPhil was on the genetics of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus. After working at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, I went to Chris Goodnow's lab at Stanford University to study immunology. After Stanford, I returned to Oxford and became a Wellcome Trust Senior Clinical Fellow and Honorary Consultant in renal medicine.
My scientific interests are in the physiological basis of immune regulation and autoimmunity, B cells, the treatment of autoimmune diseases, the use of genetics to identify new pathways involved in immunity and molecular pathology.
I am the Nuffield Professor of Clinical Medicine and Head of the Nuffield Department of Medicine and a Fellow of Magdalen College. The Departmental PA is Kathryn Smith.
