Professor Andrew Bowie

Professor of Innate Immunology

Andrew Bowie is Professor of Innate Immunology in the School of Biochemistry and Immunology. He obtained his PhD in Biochemistry from TCD in 1997, was elected a Fellow of TCD in 2008, and a member of the Royal Irish Academy in 2014. His research expertise is in the area of innate immunity, and work in his laboratory has shed light on how the innate immune system detects pathogens, how pathogens evade and subvert such detection, and also how innate immunity contributes to harmful inflammation.
