Dr Carolin Turner
I joined the Innate2Adaptive research group at UCL as post-doctoral research associate in 2014.
Beforehand, I undertook a PhD in Biological Sciences at the MRC Human Nutrition Research institute at Cambridge University, investigating immune responses to gastrointestinal nanoparticles.
As post-doc I have been involved in research in the field of inflammation and human tuberculosis infection, conducting cellular immunology experiments, transcriptional profiling, T cell receptor repertoire sequencing and bioinformatics analyses.
My current projects focus on exploring the T cell responses at mycobacterial challenge sites; and studying the effect of ageing on antigen-specific primary immune responses.
