Biography

Dr Lalors’ undergraduate degree course in Biological Sciences provided the opportunity to take a year out in industry. She was fortunate to secure a placement in the laboratory of Professor Gerard Nash where she performed studies of platelet and leucocyte recruitment using his in vitro, flow based adhesion assays. On the back of this successful project Trish was offered funding to return to Professor Nash’s group to complete PhD studies investigating the role of a specific adhesion molecule, VCAM-1 in lymphocyte recruitment.

She then moved to the laboratory of Professor David Adams to establish flow-based adhesion technology for application to investigation of inflammation in the human liver. Here whilst continuing to investigate pathways of immune cell recruitment and retention in the human liver she also extended her research to specifically investigate the unique functions of hepatic sinusoidal endothelium and the dysregulation of hepatic metabolism in fatty liver disease.

Dr Lalor was appointed as a lecturer in Immunity and Infection 2007 and awarded a Senior Lectureship in 2013.
