Research Activities

As part of Prof Jim McCluskey's team, Sidonia played a pivotal role in identifying the activating ligands of MAIT cells, a recent major breakthrough in the field. Capitalising on this knowledge, Sidonia generated tetramers (MR1-tetramers), which specifically identify MAIT cells. Sidonia continues to do fundamental research on antigen discovery of MAIT cells.
