Shedding light on uterine lymphocytes: the power of mouse models

Nov 01, 2018

The uterus of humans and mice is home to many immune cells, including natural killer (NK) and other innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), which may play important roles in pregnancy. The uterine mucosa dynamically adapts to both the menstrual cycle and pregnancy and therefore it is particularly hard to study.

‘Latent’ Tuberculosis? It’s Not That Common, Experts Find- Lalita Ramakrishnan, Dept of Medicine, University of Cambridge

Sep 21, 2018

Professor Lalita Ramakrishnan elected Fellow of The Royal Society

May 10, 2018

Lalita Ramakrishnan is the Professor of Immunology and Infectious Diseases in the Department of Medicine, University of Cambridge and has been elected Fellow of the Royal Society (2018). She studies tuberculosis disease pathogenesis in the zebrafish. The zebrafish is genetically tractable and optically transparent enabling the manipulation and monitoring of infection in real-time. The use of the zebrafish has led to surprising discoveries about TB that have immediate clinical implications.

The new Capella building- CITIID

See the home of CITIID being built in this fantastic time-lapse video. From basement to water tight in 17 months. The Capella building will be finished in 2018.


‘Fibroblast’ has been developed from a conversation between Harold Offeh and Dr Alice Denton, a scientist based at the Babraham Institute and a member of the Cambridge Immunology Network. Offeh was particularly interested in the character and roles played by particular cells in the immune system, as well as the immune system’s role as a primary source of protection and care. The film takes as a starting point microscopic images of broblast cells, an area of research for Dr Denton.
