Amir Ghaemmaghami received the M.D. degree from the National Iran University, Iran. Then, he obtained the Ph.D. degree in immunology from the University of Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, UK. Following a period of postdoctoral training at the Universities of Leicester and Nottingham, Ghaemmaghami was appointed as a Lecturer at the School of Molecular Medical Sciences, University of Nottingham, where he is currently an Associate Professor. His current research examines three main areas: construction of immunocompetent tissue models; biology of antigen-presenting cells (dendritic cells, monocytes, and macrophages) and epithelial cells and how these cells influence T-cell polarization; structural properties of allergens and the role of allergen glycosylation pattern in Th2 responses and IgE production.
