T-cells are an essential component of the immune response, important for the elimination of viral infection and the natural eradication of cancer. In addition, T-cells can play a major role in the pathogenesis of common diseases such as autoimmunity. Research within the group is focussed on three main areas: mechanisms of T-cell activation, understanding the role that T-cells play in disease and manipulation of the T-cell response for therapeutic benefit. The research talk will focus on understanding the T-cell response to foreign pMHCI and how this can inform intelligent design of immune therapies to beneficially manipulate the immune response.
