Scientific Advisor: Awen Gallimore PhD

Awen Gallimore is a Professor at the Division of Infection and Immunity, Cardiff University. She gained a DPhil in Professor Andrew McMichael’s laboratory in Oxford, studying the anti-viral role of cytotoxic T cells in SIV infection, subsequently moving to Professor Rolf Zinkernagel’s laboratory in Zurich to study the correlates of anti-viral immunity. Her current focus is on the regulation of anti-tumour immunity, with a particular focus on regulatory T cells (Treg) and the reciprocal interactions which occur between the immune system and the tumour microenvironment. The group takes basic research using model systems of cancer through to testing novel immunotherapies in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC).
