Phil Hodgkin-Lab team

Our lab shares ‘big picture’ goals around understanding immunity at molecular, cellular and whole system level with joint NHMRC program members Nutt, Tarlinton, Corcoran and Belz labs.
We also have a strong collaboration with probability expert Professor Ken Duffy, National University of Ireland.
