Haniffa Group

Cellular Genetics Programme

The team’s research applies disruptive cutting-edge techniques to study the genomics of immune cell populations at single-cell resolution and uses advanced computing capabilities to analyse data to reconstruct the immune system within its tissue context during development and adult life

This research is part of the Human Cell Atlas initiative, which has set out to create a comprehensive reference map of all human cells as the basis for understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring and treating disease.

The team’s research focuses on these areas:

  • Development Cell Atlas – decoding the development and functional maturation of the human immune system.
  • Skin Cell Atlas – unravelling the cellular circuits during homeostasis and inflammatory skin diseases.
  • Human Developmental Biology Initiative – lineage analyses of the developing human immune system.

In a JEM report, @ljpally19, @aliceroselyn et al @maini_lab identify mononuclear phagocyte and T cell subsets able to reside in the human liver for over a decade, probing their retention & longevity using HLA-mismatched allografts & hepatic venous sampling https://bit.ly/2NHDUBJ
