Professor Quentin Sattentau

Professor of Immunology

Oxford Martin Senior Alumni Fellow

Quentin Sattentau was a Principal Investigator in the Oxford Martin Programme on Vaccines, which was part of the Oxford Martin School from 2010-2015.

Quentin's work centres around the interaction of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) with its cellular targets, and tries to understand how this works and how to interfere with it. This leads his lab to work on molecular and cellular mechanisms of viral spread, pathogenesis and immune evasion. They also work on HIV antibody-based vaccine design, a particularly tough problem, and mechanisms of peanut allergy as a welcome diversion from HIV vaccine research.
