Blizard Institute - Barts and The London

Centre for Immunobiology

The Centre for Immunobiology combines top-quality research and education in immunology, with particular focus on acute and chronic inflammatory disease, lymphocyte development, and the mucosal immune system.

Our research investigates the major mechanisms by which the immune system functions, with the ultimate aim of easing the burden of major immune-related public health issues, including:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Liver diseases such as hepatitis C, hepatitis B and non-viral liver illnesses
  • Exploring treatments for haemophilia
  • Antimicrobial resistance to antibiotics
  • Type I diabetes
