ADTB Lead Investigator awarded the ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award

Using organ and tissue samples donated to ADTB, Dr Claire Gordon’s project seeks to expand our understanding of how tissue-resident memory T cells (TRM) work in humans. ​

“Whilst much of our understanding of TRM comes from animal models, how these cells work in humans is largely unknown,” said Dr Gordon. 

“Thanks to this grant, my collaborators and I will create fundamental new insights into how the immune system works and is controlled in organs like the gut, liver, and skin. This knowledge will pave the way for innovative strategies to vaccination and immune therapies, with the ultimate goal of improving health.
