Biography

Stephen Todryk is Professor of Immunology within the Department of Applied Sciences.

Having received a BSc in Applied & Human Biology in Aston, Birmingham in 1989, Steve went on to work in an NHS Immunology lab in Oxford for two years. He then embarked on a PhD at Guys Hospital, London, studying immunity and vaccines against streptococci, which he completed in 1995. He carried out postdoctoral studies on cancer immunotherapy at the Cancer Research UK lab at the Hammersmith Hospital and at St George’s London, before setting up a group as a Principal Investigator at the University of Maynooth in Ireland in 2000.
