Mechanisms that regulate T cell responses and their failure in autoimmunity


  • Prof Rose Zamoyska

    University of Edinburgh

Project summary

Autoimmune diseases are those in which dysregulation of immunity leads to attack of body tissues. Professor Zamoyska will examine the cell-signalling events that underpin the regulation of autoimmune T cells, with particular focus on PTPN22, a gene that has been implicated in several human autoimmune diseases.
