Background

My key research interest is the role of antibodies and their receptors in the human immune system, in particular a newly described Fc receptor variant in people with autoimmune disease. My work is investigating the functions of the receptor, its cellular distribution, specificity for antibodies and determining differences in its signalling pathways. My aim is to determine how this previously unknown receptor induces inflammation and whether it is a suitable disease biomarker or therapeutic monoclonal antibody target.
