Research Group Heads


The Immunohaematology research group are interested in signalling pathways that control homeostasis and function of blood and immune cells in health and disease.

Specific Research Interests

  • Defining the roles of the NFκB signalling pathway in lymphocyte development and function;
  • Modulation of iron in disorders of ineffective erythropoiesis;
  • Targeting the NFκB pathway in haematological neoplasms.
