Melanie Dunstan

Postdoctoral Research Scientist

I joined the DIL in 2017 as an Oxford-Bristol Myers Squibb (formerly Celgene) Fellow. My research is focused on single-cell analysis of gut-resident T cells in type 1 diabetes and coeliac disease. In addition, I am determining the responses of gut-resident regulatory T cells to Bristol Myers Squibb’s novel IL-2 mutein Fc fusion protein. 

Prior to joining the DIL I undertook PhD and post-doctoral research in the UK Dementia Research Institute in Cardiff (Alzheimer’s Disease Group). During this time, I developed cell models to interrogate the biological mechanisms underpinning genetic loci associated with late-onset Alzheimer’s disease.
