We are also delighted to welcome PROFESSOR DYLAN OWEN, as a COMPARE PI who joins the University of Birmingham as an Interdisciplinary Professorial Fellow, from his previous position at King’s College London. Dylan will work jointly between the Institute for Immunology and Immunotherapy and the School of Mathematics. Dylan is an expert in the technique of superresolution microscopy, which enables tiny living structures much smaller than the wavelength of light, for example membrane proteins, to be detected and analysed. The cutting-edge mathematical techniques deployed include Bayesian clustering and topological data analysis. Dylan and his group use these techniques to understand the function of T cells, a major component of the immune system.
