The Role of Neutrophils in Transplantation
Neutrophils and their associated mechanisms play a key role in transplant rejection as primary drivers of inflammation. However, they are also important for immunity against pathogens and wound healing. The transplant laboratory led by Dr Michaela Lucas has developed mouse models and advanced techniques to investigate biomarkers in the transplanted organ. This project will expand the repertoire of biomarkers to monitor the balance of neutrophil involvement in rejection and immunity. This will also guide medication protocols. This study will be undertaken in collaboration with transplant specialists to ensure our objectives are appropriate and will advance transplant patient management.PhD candidate sought
