We study white blood cells called B cells, which are responsible for immunity to infections.

These are the cells that mediate the protective effects of vaccines.

Defects in B cells also underly diseases including cancers, such as B cell leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma, as well as autoimmune conditions, such as lupus.

We are using our unique insights into the development and biology of B cells to design and assess new approaches to treating B cell cancers and autoimmunity.
