Jesmond Dalli read for his Ph.D at Queen Mary University of London, he trained at Harvard Medical School and the Brigham and Women’s Hospital with Prof. Charles Serhan. He is Reader in Molecular Pharmacology and the Director of the QMUL Lipid mediator Unit at the Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry and Queen Mary College.  Using a multidisciplinary approach his research is focused on the structural elucidation of novel omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid-derived bioactive mediators and determining the regulation of these molecules during health and diseases. His research also aims to assess cellular targets and molecular mechanisms through which these mediators exert their immune directed actions in inflammation-resolution, clearance of bacterial infections and tissue repair/regeneration. More recently his lab has also focused on the role of the pro-resolving mediators in mediating the immune directed actions of the nervous system, primarily the vagus nerve.
