Cellular Immunology and Vaccinology Group (CIVG)

Cellular Immunology and Vaccinology Group (CIVG)

The CIVG is led by Professor Jayne Hope at The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh. Our research focuses on cellular immune responses aiming to define the mechanisms whereby natural immunity is achieved and how protective immunity is induced by vaccination.

A major aim is to define the functional and phenotypic characteristics of innate immune cells and to assess their role in immune responses to mycobacterial pathogens including Mycobacterium bovis and M. avium paratuberculosis.



CIVG studies cellular immune responses and vaccine mechanisms.
