Dr. Emily Mathey PhD

Dr Emily Mathey is a research scientist in the Neuroinflammation Laboratory at the Brain & Mind Centre at the University of Sydney. Dr Mathey did her PhD at the University of Sydney followed by Postdoctoral Fellowships at the Max Planck Institute for Neurobiology, Martinsried, and University of Aberdeen, UK where she identified novel autoantibody responses to neurofascin in patients with multiple sclerosis and tested the pathogenicity of auto-antibodies responses to neurofascin and contactin 2 in animal models of MS. Dr Mathey’s research continues to focus on identifying novel autoantibody responses in patients with inflammatory neuropathies, developing assays to routinely test for these antibodies in patient sera and examining the pathogenicity of these responses in animal models.
