Tamsin Cargill

Clinical Researcher

Brief biography:

I have been working with the Barnes group alongside my clinical training for several years. Much of my work has been focused on translational cellular immunology in immune mediated hepatobiliary disease. Recently I have been awarded a Welcome Trust Clinical Fellowship to undertake a PhD on HBV immunotherapy within the vaccine group.

Research Interests:

I am interested in harnessing cellular immunology to understand disease pathogenesis and develop novel treatment strategies for hepatobiliary conditions.

Current projects:

IgG4-Related Disease Study: Natural history and pathogenesis

Immunotherapy for chronic Hepatitis B infection
