Degree Registration:

PhD Scholarship funded by the Higher Committee for Education Development in Iraq (HCED), due for completion in January 2018

School Research Theme:

Animal Infection and Immunity

Research Topic:

The role of Toll-like receptor 5 in innate immunity

Summary of Research:

Innate immunity was understood as a limited defence mechanism many years ago, while it has been of a great interest nowadays. This concept has led us to further investigate the role of innate immunity in terms of Toll-like receptors. The purpose of current research is to describe the role of Toll-like receptor 5 (TLR5) in response to flagellins of motile bacteria. This, in turn, will inform vaccine strategies using TLR ligands /agonists as adjuvants.
