Research Summary

I am interested in the genetic and epigenetic determinants of inter-individual variation in immune responses.


In 1999, Ben Fairfax intercalated a PhD in Steve Moss’ former laboratory at the MRC-LMCB, UCL. Upon completion of his clinical training in Oxford, Ben worked within Julian Knight’s group at the WTCHG where he undertook research during his Academic Foundation Programme and subsequently held a postdoctoral position supported by a Wellcome MB-PhD postdoctoral fellowship.
