Tissue Immunity in Health and Disease

Thursday, 22 December 2022

CLAIRE-GORDON-2022The Bernie Sweet Clinical Research Fellowship 2023 has been awarded to Dr Claire Gordon for her project “Tissue Immunity in Health and Disease”.


T cells protect us against infection and cancer, yet dysfunctional T cells cause autoimmune disease. Our knowledge of human T cells largely comes from research using blood and information on how T cells work in solid organs like the gut and lung is scarce. This project will decipher how T cells function in various organs in health and disease, and may lead to new treatments for infection, cancer, and autoimmune disease.
