Professor Rachel McLoughlin secures prestigious SFI Investigators Programme award

3 August 2016

Congratulations to Professor Rachel McLoughlin for securing a prestigious SFI Investigators Programme award for her project entitled: "Profiling ‘immune signatures’ predictive of outcome in Staphylococcus aureus infection: Advancing next generation vaccine design". This project will interrogate T-cell responses in specific patient groups who are at risk of S.aureus infection and will identify strategies used by the bacterium to inhibit the protection afforded by these cells, which may impede vaccine efficacy. Knowledge gained will inform next generation anti-S.arueus vaccine development. More details Photo: Mark Ferguson, Rachel McLoughlin, Eoin Casey and Mary Mitchell-O'Connor
