Dr Mahima Swamy
Principal Investigator and Sir Henry Dale Fellow
MRC PPU, School of Life Sciences
Dr. Mahima Swamy is a Wellcome Trust and Royal Society Sir Henry Dale Fellow and Programme Leader in the MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitylation Unit, and an associate Principal Investigator of the division of Cell Signalling and Immunology. Her research aims to study the function and regulation of intraepithelial lymphocytes. These are a class of poorly characterised innate-like T cells that reside in the intestinal epithelium, and are central to controlling infection, stress or transformation of the gut epithelium. Understanding the roles of intraepithelial lymphocytes will lead to better understanding of diseases such as inflammatory bowel disorders, infections and cancer.
Mahima Swamy from the MRC PPU was awarded tenure last month and has also been successful in obtaining £560,000 from the Wellcome Trust as a 2-year extension to her Henry Dale Fellowship.
