British Society for Immunology Congress 2017 | 4 - 7 December, Brighton UK

Leonie Taams

King’s College London, UK

Leonie Taams is Professor of Immune Regulation and Inflammation, and Director of the Centre for Inflammation Biology and Cancer Immunology, in the School of Immunology & Microbial Sciences at King’s College London. The main focus of research in Leonie Taams’ lab is to identify key cellular processes and molecular mechanisms involved in the regulation of inflammation in humans, with a specific interest in inflammatory arthritis. The Taams lab studies the interactions between monocytes and T cells (in particular Th17 cells, Tc17 cells and Tregs) and how these cells contribute to the initiation, perpetuation and resolution of inflammation. The lab hopes to use the knowledge gained to identify novel pathways and/or approaches to target inflammation in humans.
