Bovine TB, NK cells, innate immunity
I gained my PhD in 1994 in immunology of contact allergy, and then took up a postdoctoral position at Kings College London studying the role of CD8+ T cells in allergic responses. Following on from that I took up a second postdoctoral position at the Institute for Animal Health studying bovine dendritic cells. I progressed to senior postdoctoral scientist, then to group leader at the Institute for Animal Health leading a team investigating immune responses to Mycobacterium bovis in calves, and assessing vaccine induced immunity. In 2011, I moved to The Roslin Institute to lead a team researching innate immune responses in cattle to Mycobacterial diseases. I was made Personal Chair of Immunology in 2017.
