Prof. Dr. Dirk Werling

The Royal Veterinary College


Prof Werling graduated from the Veterinary University in Hannover, before obtaining his DrMedVet (Virology) degree while working at the ETH Zuerich. After several Fellowships, he obtained a PhD in Immunology from the University of London. He is working since 2003 at the Royal Veterinary College (London), initially as Senior Lecturer and since 2007 as Full Professor in Molecular Immunology and since 2018 as Director of the Centre for Vaccinology and Regenerative Medicine. The main research area of his group is to assess the function of the innate immune response in farm animals and evolutionary questions associated with identified differences between farm animals, human and mice. More recently, this work has evolved into functional studies concerning the mucosal immune system and how the microbiome impacts on this, specifically using organ platforms, such as organ-on-a-chip.
