Associate Professor Kate Gartlan is an immunologist with a strong interest in adaptive immune polarization and extensive experience using in vivo models to investigate inflammation and cellular immunity. Her research has been primarily focused on cytokines and the early factors that influence T cell polarization, which she has investigated in a variety of inflammatory contexts including, vaccine design, infection, allergy, transplantation and autoimmunity.
Associate Professor Gartlan has developed valuable expertise in transplant biology, murine models of GVHD, engraftment as well as translational research experience through her ongoing participation in clinical studies.
The impact of her research has led to important international collaborations in both academia and industry to investigate novel approaches to modulating inflammatory cytokine responses.
