Dr Amelia Shoemark
Primary Cilia Dyskinesia Team
Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust
Amelia is a registered clinical scientist working at the Royal Brompton Hospital, London, where she leads the scientific service for the diagnosis of Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia (PCD).
PCD is an inherited condition affecting 1 in 20,000 people in the UK (www.pcdsupport.org). Cilia are small organelles which line the surface of the nose and lungs. Their job is to clear mucus and protect the airways from infection. Amelia’s research interests concern the improvement of diagnosis and management for patients with ciliary dysfunction. Her research is funded by a NIHR fellowship.
