Course content

The Division of Transplantation Immunology and Mucosal Biology has a strong interest in basic biological mechanisms that determine the balance between health and disease. Research programmes combine expertise in complement, clotting, immune regulation, immune tolerance, tissue repair and fibrosis and how loss of normal controls results in diseases of the kidney, liver and gastrointestinal tracts. The Division is home to the MRC Centre for Transplantation which brings together research across disciplines including genetics, protein and cell therapeutics, imaging science and stem cell biology. Its collaborative programmes apply to solid organ, tissue and cell transplantation. Trainee mentorship is a priority which together with opportunities in translational and basic science, and record of internationally competitive research, offer distinctive features of the Division. Our broad programmes of work give exposure to communication skills, statistics and ethical regulation of research as well as innovative methods of treatment.
