Who we are
Established in Oxford in 1995, we’re now based in the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, a community of laboratories researching the processes underlying normal cell and molecular biology and hoping to determine how these processes are perturbed in inherited and acquired human diseases. We’re also members of the MRC Human Immunology Unit. Our own lab’s philosophy is reflected in comments made by Max Delbrück in 1976:
“If you have a good feeling for how molecules behave, you are better able to see what are really interesting problems. If you have just the vaguest notion… you think everything is possible and all your theories become arm-waving theories.”
We’re working towards generating a reliable framework for manipulating human immune responses. We welcome enquiries from anyone but especially from students wanting to do DPhil studies here.
