Biography

Professor Lawrence received his PhD in Experimental Pathology at the William Harvey Research Institute at Barts’ Medical College and performed post-doctoral work the University of California San Diego. Since 2009, he has been a tenured Research Director (Directuer de recherché) at the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research (INSERM) and Group Leader at the Centre d’Immunologie Marseille Luminy (CIML) and he maintains an Associated Group Leader Position at CIML (http://www.ciml.univ-mrs.fr/). His lab is focused on the immunobiology of macrophages and dendritic cells.
