Angela Vincent is Emeritus Professor of Neuroimmunology at the University of Oxford and has affiliations with the University of London. She is medically qualified and has an MSc in Biochemistry. She was an Honorary Consultant in Immunology and led the Oxford Neuroimmunology Service for 25 years. Although not a neurologist, she received the Association of British Neurologists medal (2009), the WFN Medal for scientific contributions to neurology (2017, Kyoto). Interests include clinical and serological studies on patients with neuromuscular junction disorders (myasthenia, MuSK-myasthenia, neuromyotonia) and acquired disorders of the CNS associated with antibodies to receptors, ion channels and associated proteins (eg. LGI1 and CASPR2, AQP4, MOG, NMDA and glycine receptors). She has also pioneered the role of maternal antibodies in causing neurodevelopmental disorders.
