Dr Ommar Omarjee is currently a research associate in the Department of Medicine at the University of Cambridge. He left sunny Mauritius in 2010 to study and train as an immunologist in Lyon, France. During his PhD thesis with Professor Alexandre Belot, He characterised novel mutations implicated in rare familial forms of autoimmunity and inflammation. In order to pursue translational human immunology research, he joined the group of Professor Christoph Hess in Cambridge in 2020 to better understand the immuno-metabolic dysregulation underpinning immune disorders in patients. He will be joining us to highlight how he got to where he is today, and what his job looks like.
