Dr. Helen Stolp graduated from the University of Tasmania with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in 2001. She was awarded a PhD position in the Department of Pharmacology, University of Melbourne in 2002, completed in 2006.

Her research aims to understand the pathophysiology of neurodevelopmental injury, and to utilize this knowledge to target therapeutic and diagnostic tools. Dr Stolp’s research focuses on the capacity of inflammation to affect developmental processes, from angiogenesis and blood-brain barrier function, to short-term and long-term consequences of inflammation on neural proliferation, differentiation and connectivity. She is particularly interested in identifying critical windows where injury interacts with ongoing neurodevelopment, providing opportunities for therapeutic intervention.
