Dr Benjamin Owens
Experienced experimental immunologist working on translational projects across murine and human systems.
Currently supported by an Oxford – UCB Pharma Postdoctoral Fellowship.
Particular interests in: Immune Regulation; Dendritic cell biology; Chronic inflammation; Intestinal mucosal immunology; Stromal immunology and the Stromal / Innate immune interface.
Currently managing several pre-clinical research projects:
– Phenotypic alterations of human intestinal stromal cells during chronic inflammation
– Novel innate immune functions of intestinal stromal cells
– Role of microRNAs in the regulation of dendritic cell function
– Development and optimisation of 3D culture models of the human intestine
I am interested in the development of novel therapeutics for chronic inflammatory disorders and am active in the industrial biopharmaceutical and entrepreneurial biotech environment, in addition to academia.
