I have 25 years of experience, and specialize in the field of neuroimmunology with specific knowledge in the areas of inflammation, the blood brain barrier and cell biology of endothelium. I have published on such topics as cell migration, transcription factors and multi-drug resistance genes. I did most of the writing and figure design for the first full-colour text book of immunology. This opening lead me to produce 5 major immunology textbooks and CDs, in more than 60 editions. Consequently, I have been able to maintain research and teaching strands of equal strength during my career.
