Personal profile


Our laboratory specialises in targeted and global quantitative proteomics of complex biological samples, with a specific focus on identifying targets of the immune response and host-pathogen interactions. The laboratory has an outstanding track record in delivering high end outcomes including recent publications in highly regarding peer reviewed journals including Nature (5), Nature Immunol (9), Science Immunology, Nat Struc Mol Biol (2), Nature Comunications (5), PNAS (14), J Exp Med (8), Immunity (8), Nature Protocols, Mol Cell Proteomics (5), Proteomics (7) and J Proteomics Res (3). We combine cutting edge proteomics with human immunology, molecular virology, structural and functional immunology to address a wide variety of immune questions.
