Professor Elizabeth Simpson OBE FRS

Elizabeth Simpson
Emeritus Professor of Transplantation Biology, Medical Research Council Clinical Sciences Centre and Senior Research Investigator, Department of Medicine, Imperial College London.
Distinguished for her elucidation of the nature of male-associated minor transplantation antigens, and their roles in the generation of immunological tolerance, graft versus host disease, and transplant rejection. Her seminal contributions have paved the way for detailed understanding of regulatory mechanisms operating in transplantation tolerance and have led to therapeutic strategies to harness such mechanisms.
