Kathryn Peall MD, PhD

MRC Clinician-Scientist Fellow, Clinical Senior Lecturer and Co-Director, Neuroscience and Mental Health Innovation Institute, Cardiff University, Cardiff, United Kingdom

Kathryn Peall received her medical degree from Oxford University before moving on to work in High Wycombe, Southampton, and New Zealand. She moved to South Wales to begin her specialist neurology training before being appointed to the inaugural cohort of the Wales Clinical Academic Track (WCAT) training programme. She was subsequently awarded an Ipsen clinical research fellowship and went on to undertake her PhD under the supervision of Professor Sir Michael Owen and Professor Huw Morris.

Following this, she undertook a clinical research fellowship with Professor Marina Tijssen at the University Medical Centre Groningen, The Netherlands. Following post-doctoral grant awards including an Academy of Medical Sciences Clinical Starter Grant, she was awarded an MRC Clinician-Scientist Fellowship.

Since taking up this fellowship and completing her neurology specialist training, Dr. Peall has focused on developing stem cell models to better understand the mechanisms underlying dystonia pathogenesis as well as continuing clinical phenotypic analyses by expanding her work to large clinically linked data sets such as the UK Biobank. She is also the clinical lead for the movement disorders service at the University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff and medical advisor to the Dystonia UK charity.
