Prof. Daniel Davis

Manchester Collaborative Center for Inflammation Research

Director of Research, Manchester Collaborative Center for Inflammation Research.

Daniel M Davis began studying the immune system at Harvard University with Jack Strominger, after obtaining a PhD in Physics in Glasgow, UK. Currently, he is a Professor of Immunology at Manchester University and Director of Research in the Manchester Collaborative Centre for Inflammation Research. Prior to this, he was the Head of the Immunology Section at Imperial College London in South Kensington. He has published over 130 academic papers, collectively cited over 11,000 times, including articles in Nature, Science and Scientific American.

Davis pioneered the use of many imaging techniques to help visualize key molecular components of an immune response. His work has helped establish new concepts in how immune cells communicate with each other; especially the immune synapse and membrane nanotubes.  He became a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2011 and currently chairs their selection panel for immunology candidates. He is also the author of a popular-level book THE COMPATIBILITY GENE, described by Bill Bryson in the Guardian’s Books of the Year as ‘elegantly written and unexpectedly gripping’. His second book, THE BEAUTIFUL CURE, has been described by Stephen Fry as 'One of those books that makes you look at everything human in a new, challenging and thrilling way'.
