The Centre for Immunobiology consists of twenty research-active groups with around eighty scientists dedicated to 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 teams are dedicated to both investigating the major mechanisms by which the immune system functions, and ultimately in easing the burden of major immune-related public health issues, including:
- The ever-increasing burden of inflammatory illnesses, in which the immune system often becomes the cause of disease
- 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

Postgraduate taught programmes
Our has contributed to the training of specialist registrars, clinical scientists and biomedical scientists over many years. In 2011 we were one of only two Universities in England to be accredited to run an MSc in Clinical Science (Infection Sciences) developed in conjunction with NHS Modernising Scientific Careers as part of the new Scientist Training Programme.
The PGDip Distance Learning/MSc in Gastroenterology is designed as a curriculum in gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition for new entrants into these fields, and as an update and extension for doctors already in the field.
It is aimed at clinicians wishing to gain strong knowledge of the sciences underpinning the clinical diseases and their management.
The programme includes the ‘taught programme’ from October until April and research projects from April until submission in August. Those undertaking the PG Diploma Distance Learning will complete only the taught programme.
Our research students undertake exciting projects in diverse areas and also benefit from excellent training and support programmes within the Blizard Institute and more widely in the College. Funded studentships are awarded competitively and are always advertised on the and at findaphd.com.
High calibre students with independent funding who wish to undertake research in one of our major research areas may contact potential supervisors direct (please note that we receive many requests for placements and it may not always be possible to respond individually).
