Professor Judith Elizabeth Allen FRSE, FMedSci

Professor of Immunobiology, University of Manchester.

Judi Allen is an immunologist investigating the host response to parasite infection. She has particular expertise in the area of type 2 immunity, which is the immune response mammals characteristically make to large multicellular parasites (helminths). Type 2 immunity is also associated with allergy. Her laboratory has had a major focus on elucidating the role of macrophages in the context of type 2 immunity. Prof Allen’s research interests also include the relationship of anti-helminth immunity to wound repair pathways, and understanding the challenges faced by the immune system during co-infection with both micro- and macroparasites. _x000D_
