Welcome to our new PPI member Aerin Thompson
I'm Aerin, a first year PhD student at The University of Edinburgh studying inflammation resolution and tissue repair.
I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis back in 2014 under paediatric care. I was experiencing severe symptoms before being admitted to hospital through A&E where I was monitored for four weeks.
I like to be active and row for the university high performance team alongside my studies. Originally from Nottingham, I am enjoying the views that Edinburgh and Scotland have to offer.
