AITHM Seminar: Professor Andrew MacDonald
Dendritic cells and macrophages in promotion and regulation of type-2 inflammation
Presented by Prof Andrew MacDonald
Prof. Andrew MacDonald is an expert in cellular immunology - in particular dendritic cell and macrophage biology, and T cell activation by antigen presenting cells during inflammation caused by helminths or allergens - with more than 20 years of experience in this area. He established his laboratory in Manchester in 2013 after successive MRC Career Development and Senior Non-Clinical Fellowships at the University of Edinburgh. His move to Manchester catalysed new collaborative projects working on activation and function of innate and adaptive immune cells during pulmonary inflammation.
