Deconstructing the human immune system using single cell

by Prof Muzlifah Aisha Haniffa
Professor of Dermatology and Immunology,
Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow in Clinical Science,
Lister Institute Research Prize Fellow, Newcastle University, UK


Muzlifah Haniffa is a Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow and Lister Institute Research Fellow. Her clinical and research interests are in dermatology and immunology. Her research programme is focused on understanding the functional heterogeneity of human mononuclear phagocytes. She has used functional genomics, comparative biology and more recently single cell RNA sequencing to study human mononuclear phagocytes. Her research aims to identify new strategies to manipulate host immune response to improve vaccination and immunotherapy. Muzlifah will discuss the power and utility of single cell RNA sequencing to identify new dendritic cells, monocytes and progenitor cells relevant for immunotherapy.
