Research Activities

Characterisation of adjuvant effects using an ovine pseudo-afferent lymphatic cannulation model. This allows for real time collection of cells draining from the vaccination or infection site and is ideal for tracking which cell types take up antigen, get recruited to the site and subsequently drain to lymph nodes via the lymphatics.
Adjuvant and vaccine development.
Exosome and microvesicle trafficking studies in lymphatics.
Very early immune responses induced by allergens.

Techniques/Expertise
