The Ward laboratory is run jointly with the laboratory of Professor Raimund Ober. The research is directed towards taking a highly interdisciplinary approach to generate effective therapeutics for autoimmunity and cancer. This involves a combination of antibody/protein engineering, fluorescence microscopy and in vivo studies in mouse models of disease.

Sally Ward is a Professor of Molecular Immunology, and Director of Translational Immunology at the Centre for Cancer Immunology within the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton.

Professor Ward received her BA with First Class Honours in natural sciences (Part II course, biochemistry), University of Cambridge, U.K., in 1982 and completed her PhD in biochemistry at the Department of Biochemistry, University of Cambridge, under the mentorship of Professor David J. Ellar in 1985. From 1988 to 1990 she held the Stanley Elmore Senior Medical Research Fellow at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge whilst working with Sir Greg Winter at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, U.K.

Prof. Ward’s current research includes the use of a combination of fluorescence imaging, protein engineering and in vivo studies to develop therapeutics to treat cancer and autoimmunity.
