David Finlay is an Associate Professor of Cancer Biology &Therapeutics, Biochemistry at the School of Biochemistry and Immunology, Trinity College Dublin. He is a leading expert in the field of immunometabolism and has published in leading journals including Immunity, Journal of Experimental Medicine, Nature Reviews Immunology, or Journal of Clinical Investigation.
His interest lays in the immune system as important determinant for protecting our health. Dr. Finay and his colleagues want to understand how to control and reprogram immune cells to treat diverse diseases. He is now revealing the importance of cellular metabolism and shows that the cellular fuels available to immune cells and the ways that these fuels are used have a big impact on the immune system. Dr. Finlay is revealing novel strategies to modulate immune cell function through targeting cellular metabolism and new therapeutic opportunities are being explored.
