Section of Immunology

Learn more about the Section of Immunology, a vibrant research group with expertise in molecular, cellular and systems immunology, studying aspects of innate and adaptive responses at multiple levels from sub-cellular biology to whole body lymphocyte repertoire. 

Our research addresses basic questions in immune system control and development as well as applied studies to improve human and animal health in ageing, infectious disease, autoimmunity and tumour immunology. 

We collaborate widely, having research partners in over twelve different countries to tackle issues such as failing pneumonia vaccine responses in the older person, or failure of protection against ebola virus disease.
