Katie Ewer      

Immunologist, Associate Professor & Senior Immunologist at the Edward Jenner Institute for Vaccine Research and Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine

Professor Ewer is senior immunologist for Oxford's Ebola and pre-erythrocytic malaria vaccine trials. She oversees the immunology on Phase I and II trials of vectored vaccines, both in the UK and in field trials in Africa.

She studies samples from clinical trial volunteers using various methods to determine the strength of their immune response to the trial vaccines, and to work out which features of the sample correspond to a stronger immune response. These findings can then be used to improve the vaccine development process, so that future vaccines offer greater protection against disease.

Ewer is also an investigator on the clinical trials of the Oxford/ AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, leading studies on T cell immunity.
