Applied and molecular immunology, cancer immunobiology, vaccines – immunology and technology
My research focuses on T cells as mediators of anti-tumour immunity and inflammation. Specifically, we study the role of inflammation and the unique features of different subsets of T cells and myeloid cells, focussing on cancer and gut-specific immune responses; and how these cell subsets are involved in patient outcome. We use high dimensional tools and analyses to study the networks of cells and molecules in the immune response
We are currently looking at T cell and myeloid cell subsets in colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease to improve diagnosis, prognosis and treatment. We are generating site-specific T cell memory using novel slow release vaccines and analysing the molecular signalling pathways required to maintain these populations.
My current areas of research are mucosal and tumour immune responses, inflammation and T cell memory.
