Ewa Paleolog received the B.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biochemistry from University of London, UK. Currently, Dr. Paleolog's research is based at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology and Division of Surgery, Anaesthetics and Intensive Care, Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College London, UK. The main research focus of Dr. Paleolog’s unit is on the role of the vascular endothelial lining of blood vessels in the pathogenesis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The work has utilized cell culture techniques, gene transfer to analyze signaling pathways, and animal models of disease. His group’s studies on the role of angiogenesis in RA were at the forefront of research in this field, and as a consequence the group is recognized as one of the leading groups in this subject. This research has allowed him to better understand the pathogenesis of RA. In particular, he aims to translate his findings in the animal models of arthritis into clinical trials of antiangiogenic therapy in RA in the foreseeable future. Dr. Paleolog is a Director of postgraduate studies at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology.
