Marsland - Respiratory Immunology Laboratory
- Asthma, lung transplantation, chronic lung diseases, microbiome.
Professor Benjamin Marsland leads the Respiratory Immunology laboratory, where the main focus of research revolves around the microbiome in the gut, lung and skin and how it can influence respiratory diseases. In particular, his laboratory studies host-microbe interactions within the context of allergy, asthma and lung transplantation.
