Babraham Institute

Liston Lab

The Liston Lab works on the interface between regulatory T cells and the tissues, focussing on developing new tools to reveal novel biology.

The Liston laboratory is based within Lymphocyte Signalling division of the Babraham Institute. We also have active teams based at the University of Leuven Department of Microbiology and Immunology and the VIB Center for Brain and Disease Research.

The Babraham team is focussed on understanding the biology of regulatory T cells within the tissues. How they migrate there, what controls their numbers and their functions, both immunological and tissue homeostatic in nature. Our approach is to identify key unknowns and then design new genetic tools to answer them.

The Leuven team is working in close collaboration with Dr Susan Schlenner and Dr Stephanie Humblet-Baron, alumni from the laboratory who are now running independent teams. Our research in Leuven focuses in on systems immunology and neuroimmunology. The laboratory also manages two Core Facilities for the University of Leuven - the FACS Core and MutaMouse, a genome engineering facility.
