The overall mission of the Taams lab is to identify fundamental cellular and molecular mechanisms that initiate, perpetuate and regulate immune-mediated inflammation in human health and disease. Their long-term goal is to identify novel targets/pathways for therapeutic intervention of inflammation and to better inform treatment decisions. To achieve this, the lab works in a multi-disciplinary environment with strong clinical, academic and industrial collaborations.
In addition to her research activities, Leonie is the Director of the Centre for Inflammation Biology and Cancer Immunology (CIBCI), Head of the Department of Inflammation Biology, Director of the Wellcome Trust PhD Programme “Neuro-Immune Interactions in Health and Disease”, Director of the King’s FOCIS Centre of Excellence and Editor-in-Chief of the BSI journal Clinical and Experimental Immunology.
