Dr Pauline McLoone graduated from the University of Glasgow in 1995 with an honours degree in Immunology. In the year 2000, she was awarded a PhD by the University of Dundee School of Medicine for a thesis titled’ Mechanisms of UV induced Immune Suppression’. She went on to carry out postdoctoral research on the chronic effects of ultraviolet radiation exposure on innate immune parameters at the University of Edinburgh as part of a European Union funded collaborative project involving partners in Poland, the Netherlands and Finland. As well as short term research projects at John Hopkins University, USA and University of Wales College of Medicine, UK, Dr McLoone has worked as a Lecturer at two universities in Nigeria, West Africa.
Dr McLoone joined Nazarbayev University, School of Medicine, in January 2015 as an Assistant Professor and has been involved in the development of Immunology and Dermatology courses for the MD program and Molecular Immunology and Natural Medicine courses for the Master in Molecular Medicine program.
Dr McLoone’s research interests include exploring natural products as potential treatments for skin disease and investigating skin cancer incidence in Kazakhstan.
