Dan Davis is Professor of Molecular Immunology at Imperial College London. He is a distinguished immunologist who pioneered the use of novel imaging techniques to help visualise key molecular components of the immune response. His work established the new concept of how immune cells communicate with each other and how they recognize disease. His ongoing research into understanding the NK cell synapse has established the importance of protein exchange between cells. His group recently described long membrane tethers or ‘nanotubes’ as a new class of physical connectors between immune cells.
