My work as a DPhil student is jointly supervised by Fiona Powrie and Graham Ogg and reflects the common interests of both groups in investigating immune function at barrier surfaces of the body.
My project investigates the role of regulatory T cells in the skin by taking advantage of the experimental models available in the Powrie lab and the access to human skin samples in the Ogg lab.
I seek to delineate the importance of FoxP3+ T cells in inflammatory skin disease with a particular emphasis on psoriasis and murine models of psoriasiform skin inflammation.
