T-cells and Immune Regulation

Sansom, David

David Sansom is Professor and Chair in Transplant Immunology at UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation.

His major research interests involve investigating fundamental aspects of how T cells determine whether to make immune responses or not. In particular focusing on the interplay between two receptors on T cells, CD28 and CTLA-4 and their binding partners, CD80 and CD86.  His lab's work on the underlying molecular and cellular mechanisms has led to advances in understanding how the CD28/CTLA-4 system functions and this knowledge has been used to develop tests of human T cell function and regulatory T cell suppression.
