Associate Professor Stuart Kellie’s research interests lie in the cell and molecular biology of phagocyte function.

Phagocytes are cells that protected the body by eating harmful foreign particles, bacteria and dead or dying cells.

Phagocytes, such as macrophages, play a central role in both the innate and acquired immune responses.

(The innate immune system is the body’s first line of defense against microbial attack.)

Aberrant activation of phagocytes can lead to chronic inflammatory diseases.
