Andrew D. Foey
Andrew D. Foey graduated in immunology and received the Ph.D. degree in investigating the modulation of monocyte proinflammatory cytokine expression from the University of Bath, Bath, UK, in 1995. He undertook a postdoctoral fellowship at the Kennedy Institute for Rheumatology, London, UK (1996 to 2003), the laboratory of Professors Fionula Brennan and Marc Feldmann, researching T cell modulation of macrophage signaling and induction of IL-10, where he developed an interest in the control of macrophage functional phenotypes and plasticity, which resulted in an MRC career development fellowship at MRC HNR, Cambridge, UK, where this work was applied to mucosal immunity and Crohn’s disease. Foey joined the University of Plymouth as a Lecturer in immunology, where he is currently pursuing his interests in microbial (commensal, probiotic, and pathogenic) modulation of macrophage plasticity and effector cytokines in the context of both oral and gut mucosal diseases.
