Department of Infection
University of Leicester
I received my undergraduate degree from University College, London and my Doctoral degree from The London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine UK, where I investigated the interaction between macrophages and protozoan parasites of the genus Leishmania.
The goal of my programme is to define the factors impacting the expression of immunity in the lung. The underlying themes include: the role of early innate events in driving coordinated immune responses the role of cytokines and chemokines in initiation, expression and regulation of immunity the role of lymphocyte priming, differentiation and migratory capacity in prolonged expression of immunity the role of the inflamed environment in regulating the expression of immunity
