Introduction Welcome to the webpage of the Genetics and Infection Laboratory. This research laboratory is a research interest of the Department of Medicine at the University of Cambridge, based at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research.

Our group is interested in the role of macrophages in regulating susceptibility to, and vaccination against, intramacrophage pathogens (Leishmania, Mycobacterium, Salmonella). We are taking a genetic approach to identifying genes/mechanisms involved in disease susceptibility, and have a particular interest in the interplay between infectious and autoimmune disease susceptibility genes. We are also interested in vaccine development using DNA vaccination to screen potential new candidate vaccines from the output of the Leishmania sequencing project.
