About the lab

My laboratory focuses on how our blood and immune systems are carefully maintained by the action of proteins called cytokines. These are molecular messengers that instruct blood cells to grow and develop in the right way. When this signalling goes awry it can lead to diseases such as leukaemia.

Our research aims to understand cytokine signalling at a molecular level. We study the three-dimensional structures of molecules involved in this process. Our goal is to develop new treatments for diseases involving faulty cytokine signalling.
