Dr Jamunanithy Selvakumaran

Personal profile

Jamuna Selvakumaran received her B.Sc. and Ph.D. from University of Surrey. She then undertook her postdoctoral research in Bioglass for bone remodelling at Imperial College London. Jamuna joined Royal Holloway, University of London as a Daphne Jackson Post-doctoral Research Fellow funded by BBSRC in 2013 after a long career break to bring up her two daughters. Her research focused on restoring nerve function after spinal injury using non-integrating lentiviral vectors in Rafael Yáñez’s lab, supported by Spinal Research Trust (CHASE-IT consortium). She has also been working on the development of an induced pluripotent stem cell based in vitro model of the human blood-brain barrier to test therapeutics.
