Name: Roy O. Weller MD, PhD, FRC path
Affiliation: Emeritus Professor of Neuropathology
University of Southampton
Having trained in Neuropathology in London and New York, I moved to the University Hospital in Southampton where I was responsible for the diagnostic Clinical Neuropathology service and the teaching and research programmes in Neuropathology. One of my major research programmes has been to define the pathways for lymphatic drainage of fluid, soluble metabolites and antigens from the brain and the roles of these pathways, not only in neuroimmunology but also in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease.
