Regulatory B cells in autoimmune disease
Claudia Mauri is Professor of Immunology, Centre for Rheumatology and Bloomsbury Rheumatology Unit, UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences. Her main research focuses on the identification, functional analysis and the genetical characterization of regulatory B cells. Her complementary interest includes the understanding of the cause of the loss of regulation of immune responses (regulatory B and T cells), which may be the cause of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).
She obtained a PhD in microbiology from the University of Rome La Sapienza, Italy, in 1990. Following postdoctoral studies in London at The Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology and Imperial College, she moved to UCL Centre for Rheumatology in 2002 where she established her group.
