the Gallimore Godkin
Cancer Immunology lab


Welcome to the Gallimore / Godkin laboratory website. The group, consisting of over 15 members, researches the complex interactions between the immune system and cancer. The lab has a strong track record for translational bench-to-bedside research, and has two key elements focused on this goal:

- Basic immunology and pre-clinical models of cancer, led by Prof Awen Gallimore;
- Clinical and translational research, with a particular focus on colorectal cancer, led by Prof Andrew Godkin.

Together, our research has attracted significant funding, resulting in world-class publications and clinical trials that benefit cancer patients.

The lab is part of the Division of Infection & Immunity in the Cardiff University School of Medicine, recently ranked 8th in the UK for the quality of its research. We have long-standing collaborations with clinical staff in the University Hospital of Wales and Velindre Hospital, allowing our research to involve and directly impact patients in the South Wales area.
