Transplantation, Immunology and Mucosal Biology (DTIMB) is made up of five research departments that are based at both Guy’s and Denmark Hill campuses of King’s College London with close integration with the two local NHS Trusts – King’s College Hospital and Guys’ and St Thomas’.
DTIMB covers a broad range of basic and clinical research and aims to pursue excellence in fundamental medical science as well as translational research throughout the related clinical research fields at King’s Health Partners. The Division unites expertise in basic immunology and transplantation biology at King’s with clinical research teams at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Trust and King’s College Hospital who manage some of the largest transplant-patient cohorts in Europe to deliver excellence in research at an internationally competitive level, and pursue top quality patient-orientated studies.
The MRC Centre for Transplantation sits within the Division as well as working with research teams in Genetics, Dermatology, Imaging, Dental and the School of Law and Ethics. The Division is also closely linked with the Transplant theme of the NIHR Comprehensive Biomedical Research Centre at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and forms a part of the UK Regenerative Medicine (UKRMP) Immunology Hub with Divisional PIs leading the Hub’s research themes in Innate and Adaptive Immunity.
In April 2016 the Division received the Silver Athena SWAN award for it's successful submission to the Charter for Women in Science.
