The Roslin Institute
Veterinary (especially avian) immunology, vaccinology and pathogenesis
My research is focussed on host-pathogen interaction. The research provides an excellent framework for understanding how pathogens modulate the immune responses and how we can intervene and modulate the immune responses of the host, ultimately leading to the enhancement of immune mediated resistance in poultry. The research led to fundamental immunological knowledge and the development of immunological assays as well as applied knowledge in collaboration with vaccine and feed companies.
