Aims & Values

We apply disruptive omics technologies to study the human cells at single-cell resolution. We leverage advanced computational methods to understand how the immune system develops and maintains health, and study the consequences of infection, inflammation and disease.

Strength through diversity.

We're a diverse lab consisting of clinicians, researchers and students from across the globe.

Reproducible science.

Data and analysis code from our publications are publicly available through our website.

Advocating team science.

We advocate team science within a supportive and collaborative research environment.

Inclusion and innovation.

We work hard to create a fun, inclusive training environment for all researchers and students.

Research Interests

Public Engagement
