Raphael Sanches Peres


Postdoctoral Researcher

PhD in Immunology at University of São Paulo-Brazil studying the mechanisms associated with methotrexate resistance in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. I joined the Fiona Powrie’s group at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology in 2017 granted with an EMBO Long-Term Fellowship.

My research investigates the contribution of regulatory T (Treg) cell to the maintenance of the immunological homeostasis as well as the events linked to Tregs biology that have impact on the development, establishment, and resolution of chronic inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease. In general, my interest is to develop novel therapeutic strategies for inflammatory diseases focused on the manipulation of Tregs function and determine how this cell population may influence the efficacy of therapeutic agents, such as methotrexate and TNF inhibitors.
