Understanding opportunistic infection in the immunocompromised


Our research is focused on understanding infectious disease and improving patient treatment. We want to further our fundamental understanding of how the immune system responds to infection, especially normal immunity to opportunistic infection.


We are primarily based in Firth Court at The University of Sheffield. We are members of The Medical School, The Florey Institute, The Bateson Centre, and The Krebs Institute.
