BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD

Postdoctoral Research Scientist

Postdoctoral Research Scientist in Outbreak Pathogens


2015-2018 - BSc (Hons) Sports Science, St Mary's University, Twickenham 

2018-2019 - MSc Human and Applied Physiology, King's College London 

2019-2023 - PhD in Infection, Inflammation, and Immunity, University of Southampton 


Dr Lee Page is a Postdoctoral Research Scientist specialising in Outbreak Pathogens within the Oxford Vaccine Group, situated within the Department of Paediatrics at Oxford University.

Lee holds a a degree (BSc, Hons) in Sports Science from St Mary's University, followed by a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Human and Applied Physiology from King's College London. Lee gained his PhD in Infection, Inflammation, and Immunity from the University of Southampton. 

During his undergraduate dissertation project, Lee investigated the role of ergogenic aids in modulating human physiological performance in extreme environments. His research focused on the effects of taurine supplementation on thermoregulation during exercise in high temperatures, which was later published in the European Journal of Sports Science.

For his Master's thesis, Lee shifted his focus to the mechanisms at play within the blood-brain barrier. Investigating the role of ATP-binding cassette and solute carrier transporters, he explored the translocation of the antipsychotic amisulpride in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) and normal aging, utilising an animal model of AD to advance understanding in this area.

During his doctoral studies, Lee concentrated on elucidating the impact of low oxygen levels (hypoxia) on the respiratory airways of patients with chronic lung disease during bacterial infection. Lee developed an in vitro airway epithelium model and an ex vivo human lung tissue explant model to investigate the host-pathogen interactions during nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi) infection under hypoxic conditions.
