Prof Hogarth’s research teams have made seminal contributions to the molecular discovery of human, non-human primate and mouse Fc receptors and the comprehensive analysis of their genetics, structure and function. His team’s critical insights into actions of Fc receptors in antibody function in normal and pathological immunity underpins the understanding of the action of monoclonal antibody drugs and has led to the candidate biological and chemical therapeutics.
He has advised start-up and major biotech companies on the development of their biological therapeutics and has extensive experience in the translation and commercialisation of biomedical research.
