‘Autoimmune complications of CLL’
We know that CLL and SLL patients have compromised immune systems. However, a complication can arise when antibodies or lymphocytes are produced against substances naturally present in the body. Dr Marr will be examining this topic which is of great relevance for CLL patients.
Dr. Helen Marr is Consultant Haematologist at the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle on Tyne and has contributed to numerous papers on blood cancer She qualified from University of Nottingham in 2002 before completing her general medical training in Newcastle. She worked as a haematology registrar in Christchurch Public Hospital in New Zealand before returning to complete her haematology specialist registrar training in Newcastle. She was awarded a PhD in 2015 from Newcastle University for her thesis, ‘Regulation of CD38 by IRF4 in CLL’. She was appointed to her Consultant post in 2017 and has a special interest in CLL and lymphoma.
Our patient speaker, Robin Coton, will be in conversation with one of our trustees, Gail Wiegman, about his CLL experience.
