Immunology

Immunology

Our immunology research spans the gamut from basic molecular studies through to clinical trials and new patient treatments.

We are particularly strong in the areas of conventional and unconventional T-cell immunity, cancer immunotherapy, autoimmune disease, homing and trafficking of immune cells and the structure biology of antigen receptors and the ligands they recognise.

Research Groups

Cell Migration Group

Our research interests lie in lymphocyte trafficking, specifically in cell adhesion molecules and the regulation of their activity and function. 

Cancer Immunology Group

To identify pathways that limit tumour growth and those that impede effective anti-tumour immunity.

T-cell Modulation Group

Working towards understanding the genetic, biochemical and cellular mechanisms that govern T-cell responses to human disease.
