Abstract

The body’s surfaces are continually under threat from microbes that may cause debilitating disease. Our ability to control such infections relies on our immune system, consisting of different cell types with specialised functions. We will study frontline immune cells that populate barrier tissues such as skin and mucosa where they provide enhanced local protection by responding vigorously on infection. Our studies will guide the development of future therapies harnessing our immune system.
