United Kingdom

Professor Mitchison received his PhD degree from New College Oxford with Sir Peter Medawar and hold professorial and leadership positions at University of Edinburgh, National Institute of Medical Research, London, University College London and German Institute for Research in Rheumatology. His contributions, now textbooks matter now include requirement of antigen presentation by cell, cell mediated graft rejection, low zone tolerance and ‘hapten’ – carrier effect. His influence in the development of immunology is hard to overestimate. His present interest is in immunoregulation and genetics.
