About the Division of Cell Signalling and Immunology (CSI)

We host research groups whose work is relevant to the pathologies associated with:

  • cancer
  • diabetes
  • infectious disease
  • autoimmunity
  • allergy

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.
