Alastair Denniston’s specialist interests within ophthalmology are ocular immunity, ocular imaging and outcome measurement in inflammatory eye disease. His laboratory work in immunology is directed towards understanding what causes intraocular inflammation (uveitis) and other forms of inflammatory eye disease.

He is keen to promote awareness of ophthalmic research and has been actively involved with the MRC Max Perutz Science Writing Prize, the Big Bang and the British Science Festival. His motivation, whether in research or in the clinic, is to improve our care of patients with potentially blinding ocular disease.

Alastair supervises doctoral researchers working in the areas of human intraocular inflammation and immunity.
