Cell Signalling and Immunology
Our work is relevant to the pathologies associated with cancer, diabetes, infectious disease, autoimmunity and allergy.
We host research groups whose work is relevant to the pathologies associated with:
- infectious disease
A common theme that links the activities of the eight different groups is a shared interest in the mechanisms that cells use to sense external signals such as those detected by various receptors in the immune system on the one hand and on the other, internal signals that indicate changes in cellular metabolic activity and energy status.
Remarkably, the biochemical ‘wiring’ underlying these diverse systems is often overlapping providing unexpected opportunities for collaboration among the different groups in CSI.
CSI is planning to expand its activities and would like to hear from scientists at any career stage with overlapping or complementary interests considering relocating to Dundee.

Collaborative research between the Universities of Dundee and Cambridge has uncovered how ‘assassin’ immune cells are able keep on killing as they hunt down cancer cells, repeatedly reloading their toxic weapons.
