Research interests:The Allen laboratory studies the interaction between helminth parasites and their hosts. We aim to understand the function of the ‘type 2’ immune response typically induced in response to helminths. We are particularly interested in macrophages activated in the ‘type 2’ environment. We are funded by the Medical Research Council and the Wellcome Trust.
