About us


Our mission is to deliver world-class research and education focusing on the immune system and how it functions during health and disease.  

Our multidisciplinary research has applications in many areas of medicine, particularly in the fields of organ transplantation, oncology, diabetes, rheumatology, virology, immunology, hepatology, vaccines and many more.  

From leading large European consortiums into the effect of the microbiome on chronic liver disease to facilitating local Public, Patient Involvement groups and conducting a national survey on the state of rheumatoid arthritis care, we work across disciplines and have many partners in the United Kingdom and globally.  

We educate the next generation of scientists, researchers and clinicians. Our academic programmes of research-inspired teaching and clinical practice are embedded across our three departments.
