New appointments in the Centre for Immunology and infection

Posted on Wednesday 17 September 2014

The CII is excited to welcome two new appointees over the summer, Prof Antal Rot and Dr Ian Hitchcock.


The Centre for Immunology and Infection is structured into three overlapping research areas: clinical and translational researchimmunology, and pathogen biology.

The Centre's researchers are involved in two major interdisciplinary collaborations:
