UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health


Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health



Our mission is to undertake research into the cellular, molecular, genetic and clinical aspects of paediatric immunology and thereby establish an international reputation in the general field of immunobiology.

Protection against infectious disease requires complex and coordinated interactions between the various components of specific (adaptive) immunity, innate immunity and the inflammatory response. The research carried out in the Immunobiology Section is directed towards understanding the complex cellular and molecular interactions between these components of the immune system.

The Section also has close associations with the Department of Clinical Immunology and the Department of Dermatology at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.
