Mintern laboratory: Vaccine biology
Dr Mintern is a Senior Lecturer and Laboratory Head in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. She investigates mechanisms of vaccine biology.
Advancing vaccine design is important for the treatment and prevention of infectious disease and cancer. We investigate the fundamental cell biology of how an immune response begins and apply innovative bioengineered tools to probe mechanisms of vaccine biology.
The projects use a wide range of experimental approaches including:
- application of novel DNA-based fluorescent probes
- immunofluorescent microscopy
- flow cytometry
- experimental models of inflammation, infection and cancer
