Graham Anderson


Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

Graham Anderson’s laboratory is interested in the mechanisms that regulate the generation of a self-tolerant T cell pool. These events occur within the thymus, an organ that provides specialised microenvironments to support the development of mature T cells from their bone marrow-derived precursors. In particular, epithelial cells within the thymus provide essential signals to these migrant precursors that regulate their proliferation, commitment and differentiation. Defects in thymic epithelial cell development and function are known to be linked to autoimmunity and immunodeficiency, making analysis of these cells important in understanding normal immune system development and function.

Professor Anderson supervises doctoral research students in the areas of thymus biology and T cell development.
