Roslin scientist discusses career in immunology

The video of Professor Jayne Hope’s inaugural lecture on ‘TB or not TB? The fight for immunity’ is now live.

In her inaugural lecture, Professor Jayne Hope, Personal Chair of Immunology at the Roslin Institute, discussed differences between the immune responses of mice, cows and people.

These differences are important for design and delivery of vaccines for important infectious diseases such as tuberculosis.

Starting with her PhD studies of the immune response to allergens in mice, Professor Hope has held an interest in innate immunity throughout her career, which is now being applied to studies of vaccines for tuberculosis in cows.

The video of the inaugural lecture is available below.
