Professor Paul Kaye has been elected a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, for his contributions to understanding the immunology of parasitic diseases.


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:
