There are four major projects in the Bowdish lab:

  1. The role of the macrophage scavenger receptors in host defence

  2. Understanding how age-associated changes in innate immunity increase susceptibility to infection

  3. Dissecting the complex interplay between host immune surveillance and the microbiota of the upper respiratory tract

  4. Discovering novel strategies to prevent pneumonia and infections in vulnerable populations.

In addition we aim to be a resource to our fellow macrophage biologists be they novices or experts. As such we make our protocols available via our Protocols page and our general publications on macrophage phenotype, diversity, origin and function are available below….

      5.  General macrophage publications
