The immunology research team specialises in primary immune deficiencies (PID) and allergy. We manage and participate in a wide variety of PID studies, including a national and European online registry.

The department coordinates the UK Primary Immunodeficiency registry and the European Society of Immunodeficiencies patient registry in which Manchester has the fourth largest group of PID patients in the UK.

We also participate in surveillance studies of patients with hereditary angioedema and colaborates on the PID-Bridge study.
