Professor Paul Garside
Chair in Basic Immunology, Institute of Infection, Immunity and Inflammation
The long-standing theme of Paul’s research has been to investigate the fundamentals of immune regulation in vivo and apply any findings to infectious and autoimmune disease scenarios.
Professor Garside has dedicated his research to drive innovative approaches to understanding immune responses in vivo. His was amongst the first groups to apply developments in imaging technology to the study of immunological tolerance and provided amongst the earliest demonstrations of the importance of immune system dynamics. Further work on immune priming versus tolerance revolutionised our understanding of the molecular bases of these phenomena and broader impact has been achieved with key publications in inflammatory, infectious and autoimmune disease.
Paul’s research focuses on the fundamentals of immune regulation in vivo and applying these findings to infectious and autoimmune disease scenarios.
