MICHAEL RATCLIFFE, DEAN OF ARTS AND VICE-PROVOST OF TRINITY COLLEGE
More than three years in the making and more than 3,000 pages long (in five volumes!), the Encyclopedia of Immunobiology, 1st Edition, is the largest integrated source of immunological knowledge currently available. Professor Ratcliffe, former Chair of the Department of Immunology at the University of Toronto, was asked to be the editor-inchief of the text, which brings together international experts from all fields of immunology. Arranged in thematic sections, it covers a wide range of research by scientists in fundamental immunology as well as applied aspects of immunology. Ratcliffe also took on the role of co-editor of the volume “Physiology and immune system dysfunction” and his colleague, Professor Alberto Martin, Trinity’s Director of the Immunology Program, was co-editor of the “Molecular Immunology” volume.
