NETWORK OF ASSOCIATIONS

The business model of ImmunoSYS is essentially based on expertise that comes through a network of associations in academia as well as industry. We prefer to keep ImmunoSYS focused and specialised in immunology and access our associated partners specialised in other disciplines (for example analytical chemistry) to provide a solution that requires an integrated approach of sciences. This helps to tap into higher expertise and lower our overheads so that we can offer better quality to our clients at a more competitive rate. The network also brings in more state-of-the-art research knowledge into practical translation enabling academic experts to engage with the industry. Our confederation style network enables other specialist SMEs to bring their expertise into an integrated business project.

In summary, we provide the immunology and the whole project, and our associates provide the other bits.

Transgenic technology and gene targetting

Professor Werner Muller based in Manchester and with additional resources in Germany is an specialist in transgenic technology and cell specific gene targetting. He has developed many transgenic mouse models that are used by many scientists around the world including UK, US, Germany, Japan, Israel and Australia. His company Eugene (www.eugene.de) offers among other things support related to genetic engineering, for example planning of genetic plants, registration of genetic plants, etc. Eugene also develops webpages in the field of the biological information technology. Eugene offers a tool, DNAPLOT that the client can bind also into own applications.

ACADEMIC ASSOCIATES

UNIVERSITY OF SHEFFIELD

BIOTECHNOLOGY

Dr. Daniel Jim Gilmour is a Senior Lecturer in microbiology at the University of Sheffield. He is a specialist in microalgal biotechnology in the Department of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology.

Dr. Gilmour is involved in a project with ImmunoSYS to investigate Bangladeshi algal species for their compatibility and abundance in biomass generation. His visit to Bangladesh is planned for sampling, ecological analysis and meeting with biotech/plant specialists/academics in Bangladesh.

 

UNIVERSITY OF CHESTER

MATHEMATICS

Professor Neville Ford is the founder and director of the University of Chester Mathematical Sciences Research Group and also the Dean for Research. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications for services to Mathematics and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. His research interests combine theory, computational simulations and modelling applications of functional differential equations in materials science, in the environmental sciences, in the biosciences, and in medicine. He has experience in mathematical analysis of immunologic cell interactions and has been collaborating with ImmunoSYS since 2015 to engage more in the area.
