Amir Ghaemmaghami obtained his M.D. degree (1st class) from the National Iran University before studying for a Ph.D. degree in immunology at the University of Nottingham. Following a period of postdoctoral training at the University of Leicester and the University of Nottingham, he was appointed as a Lecturer in immunology at the School of Molecular Medical Sciences (University of Nottingham) where he is currently an Associate Professor. Dr Ghaemmaghami's current research examines three main areas: 1- construction of immunocompetent tissue models, 2- biology of antigen-presenting cells (dendritic cells, monocytes, and macrophages) and epithelial cells and how these cells influence T-cell polarization, and 3- structural properties of allergens and the role of allergen glycosylation pattern in Th2 responses and IgE production.
