Human Dendritic Cell Laboratory

The Human Dendritic Cell Lab is at the Institute of Cellular Medicine at Newcastle University.  Dendritic cells are the sentinels and orchestrators of immune responses and the focus of our research is to understand where they come from and how they work in living humans.  Our work is relevant to infectious diseases, transplantation and cancer medicine.  We have a special interest in patients with dendritic cell deficiency and histiocytosis.
