Dr Gillian Wilson

  • Research Associate (Immunology)

Biography

I am currently working as a Research Associate with Gerry Graham within the Chemokine Research Group studying the role of chemokines and their receptors in mammary gland development.

Prior to this I worked as a post doc at the University of Aberdeen with Prof. Gordon Brown, where we showed the C-type lectin receptor CLECSF8 is a key receptor on immune cells essential for anti-mycobacterial immunity. I completed my PhD at the University of Edinburgh in 2011 with Prof. Ross Fitzgerald and Prof. Ivan Morrison. During this time we discovered a novel superantigen important in the pathogenesis of nectrotising pneumonia.

Research interests

I am working on the role of chemokines and their receptors in mammary gland development. I have a particular interest in studying chemokine directed positioning of immune cells and interactions between the stroma and epithelium in the mammary gland. This will provide key insights into our understanding of development but could also help us understand how inflammation is regulated and how breast cancers arise.
