The Group of Mucosal Infection and Immunity is part of the Department of Medicine at Imperial College. Led by Professor Robin Shattock, the main focus of research is the investigation of the mechanisms of mucosal HIV transmission and development of novel preventative strategies appropriate to a developing world setting.
The group's research has been instrumental in elucidating the early mechanism of HIV transmission. This has led to the establishment of international collaborations aimed at preclinical identification, development and selection of microbicide and vaccine candidates before formal clinical efficacy trials.
The group also investigates respiratory infections, particularly in early life. Dr John Tregoning is focussing on the causes of severe respiratory viral infection and exploring mechanisms to prevent them.
