Professor Charles Bangham HTLV specialist London, UK
Since 1987 I have studied the virology and immunology of persistent virus infections, in particular infection with the human T-cell leukaemia virus (HTLV-I).
Our aim is to produce a comprehensive, coherent, qualitative and quantitative understanding of the persistence of HTLV-I and the immune response to HTLV-I, and an explanation of why certain individuals infected with HTLV-I develop fatal or disabling diseases while the majority remain asymptomatic. We use a broad range of techniques in molecular and cellular immunology, viral and host genetics, cell biology, DNA expression microarrays, proteomics and mathematics.
