Frank Waldron-Lynch MB, BChir, PhDSenior Clinical Trials Fellow and Honorary Consultant Endocrinologist, Division of Experimental Medicine & Immunotherapeutics, University of Cambridge, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Frank is a Physician-Scientist at the University of Cambridge, where he leads a cross functional Experimental Medicine Team that develops patient centric novel immunotherapeutic strategies to treat autoimmune diseases. To achieve this aim, he has employed state-of-the-art adaptive clinical trial designs with the use of multiple clinical and mechanistic biomarkers to quantify immune homeostasis whilst also characterizing the effects of treatment. Prior to Cambridge, Frank was a clinical Fellow at Yale School of Medicine, where at the bench he extended the use of humanized mouse models to investigate the mechanisms of action of human biologics in vivo. He is a medical graduate of the University of Cambridge, received his BSc in Biochemistry and, PhD in Immunogenetics from the National University of Ireland. In recognition for his work in type 1 diabetes, he has recently been awarded fellowships from both the Royal College of Physicians (London) and the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, while his team won a University of Cambridge Award for Public Engagement in Research in July 2017.
In his spare time, he enjoys travelling with his family, coaching under-11s rugby, swimming and perfecting his tennis serve.
