CIDRI-Africa

I am a contributing investigator with the CIDRI-Africa Wellcome Centre and have collaborated on a number of interesting projects relating to TB. Current work with investigators includes looking at host recognition and clearance of Pneumocystis with Dr Hoving, and the diversity of CD4+ Th subsets in TB immunity with Dr Riou.
