Our researchers - Professor Linda Wooldridge
Contributing to research themes:
Linda is a T-cell immunologist who leads the Clinical T-cell Lab which is based in the Faculty of Health Sciences in the University of Bristol. Linda originally graduated as a veterinary surgeon from the University of Bristol in 1996. During the time that she worked as a veterinary surgeon, she developed an interest in T-cell immunology, which led her to complete a MSc in Human Immunity at the University of Liverpool followed by a DPhil in human T-cell immunology at the University of Oxford. In 2006, Linda was awarded a Wellcome Trust Intermediate Clinical Fellowship, and then in September 2013 she moved to the University of Bristol to take up a chair in Translational Immunology.
Work in the Clinical T-cell lab is focused on understanding the role that T-cells play in health and diseases such as cancer and viral infection, and includes translational projects aimed at the development of novel therapeutics for the treatment of diseases such as cancer. The lab has a broad range of expertise including the in-depth analysis of T-cell cross reactivity, T-cell epitope identification and pMHCI tetramer technology.
