Research & Impact
We are named after Peter Gorer, a graduate and alumni of King’s, whose discovery of murine H-2 antigens lies at the heart of cellular immunology and provided a basis for understanding the immune response to infections, tumours, and transplanted organs, as well as in autoimmune diseases.
Our research aims to understand the interplay between protective immunological mechanisms and the infections and tumours that challenge human health. We identify the factors underlying organ transplant rejection and develop effective interventional strategies for allergies, respiratory and autoimmune diseases.
Our research contributes to the MRC & Asthma UK Centre in Allergic Mechanisms of Asthma and the Allergy Academy.
