Prof. Inal has an Microbiology BSc at King's College London and Virology MPhil. He focused on vaccine research for his PhD at Porton Down (Centre for Applied Microbiology and Research, part of the Public Health Laboratory Service and now Public Health England, Centre for Emergency Preparedness and Response). Here he gained experience in public health microbiology (up to ACDP category 3 pathogens and genetic manipulation thereof).

He also worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Immunology Unit at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, MRC Immunochemistry Unit at Oxford and was a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Biomedicine at the University Hospital Basel, Switzerland.

He was Professor of Immunology at London Met from 2007 to 2017 and founded the Cellular and Molecular Immunology Research Centre. He was also Professor of Biomedical Science and Associate Dean of Research at the School of Life and Medical Sciences, University of Hertfordshire from 2017 to 2020. In 2020 Professor Inal returned to London Met as Professor of Immunobiology. He is still a visiting Professor of Biomedical Science at the University of Hertfordshire.
