Hayley Evans

Postdoctoral Fellow, Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Oxford, and Oxford Centre for Neuroinflammation, UK.

Hayley Evans studied for her PhD at the Department of Immunology, Infection & Inflammatory Disease, King’s College under the supervision of Professor Leonie Taams. Her work there focused on human Th17 biology and the role of these cells in the Rheumatoid Arthritis. In 2010 she moved to the Centre for Molecular & Cellular Biology of Inflammation where this work was further developed in close collaboration with Professor Frederic Geissmann.

In 2013 Hayley moved to the University of Oxford to work with Professor Lars Fugger. Here she established the use of CRISPR in the laboratory before specialising in single cell RNA-seq and ATAC-seq. She now works as a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow within the Oxford Centre for Neuroinflammation working to combine genetics, transcriptomics, and proteomics to reveal novel therapeutic options for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis.
