Roxana Carare is a medically qualified Professor of Clinical Neuroanatomy, University of Southampton, UK. Having graduated in general medicine in 1994 in Bucharest, Roxana completed her PhD in experimental neuropathology in 2006, in the University of Southampton, UK. Her main international recognition has come from the neuroanatomy and neuropathology research she leads, demonstrating the unique pathways by which fluid and soluble amyloid are eliminated from the brain along basement membranes within the walls of cerebral capillaries and arteries. The focus of her research is to manipulate the pathways to improve the clearance of amyloid and interstitial fluid from the ageing brain, preventing neurodegenerative diseases. She has published in high impact peer review journals and has co-authored in the Encyclopaedia of Neuroscience. Roxana teaches anatomy extensively, leads the undergraduate Masters in Medical Sciences Programme, communicates with industrial partners and the public and champions diversity.
