About our research

Knowledge is gained through spatial, temporal and single cell analysis of immune cells using in vivo models, which is then used to design new approaches for the prevention and treatment of human diseases

Aims of our research

  • Define key genes, proteins and cells in the innate and adaptive immune systems that control differentiation, homeostasis and regulation of the immune response
  • Understand immunity to pathogens and how this can be used to improve vaccination strategies
  • Define the pathogenesis of immunological diseases ranging from autoimmunity to transplant rejection and how to manipulate the immune system through immunotherapy
