Skin immune system

The Skin Immune System Unit forms part of the Centre for Dermatology, within the Institute of Inflammation and Repair.

We are particularly interested in all aspects of skin immunity and skin immune responses and their roles in inflammatory skin disease. The Unit has an interest on the effects in the environment on skin immune responses, particularly those of UV radiation, stress and age.
