Chief Scientist Office grant

We are delighted to be starting research funded by a new grant from the Chief Scientist Office today.

This award will fund a new Postdoctoral Researcher (starting later in the year) and Research Assistant (Lauren Melrose), working with Donald J. Davidson, Debby Bogaert, Jurgen Schwarze, Steve Cunningham, James Boardman and Catherine MacDougall, to characterise the upper airways expression of Antimicrobial Host Defence Peptides across longitudinal clinical cohorts in the context of understanding their roles in protection against Respiratory Syncytial Virus and in defining the upper airway microbiome, with a view to developing novel therapeutic strategies.
