  How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function
  Dr K Couper, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.
