Dr Christopher Thornton
Associate Professor of Fungal Immunology

Profile

I am an immunologist with a specialist interest in hybridoma technology. My past research has focused on the study of ‘free-living’ saprotrophic fungi in soil, using monoclonal antibodies to study their biology and ecology. More recently, my research has concentrated on human infection by opportunisitic fungal pathogens and their rapid detection using monoclonal antibodies. I am a member of the Microbes and Disease research group.
