Douglas Dyer, Postdoc at the University of Glasgow, Glasgow, UK
Doug did his PhD in Immunology at the University of Manchester, based at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Cell-Matrix Research in Tony Day’s lab. He focussed his PhD on the interactions between the anti-inflammatory regulator TSG-6 and chemokines during immune cell recruitment. As he was interested in the field of chemokine biology and the immune system he decided to continue working in this field and started a postdoc in Tracy Handel’s lab at UCSD. Doug worked there for two and a half years and enjoyed living right on the San Diego beach.
