Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.
  Enhancing Macrophage-Biofilm Interaction using Non-Thermal Plasma
  Prof B Gilmore, Dr P Flynn
Applications accepted all year round
