The Graham Lab - Wellcome Project Group

The project aims to investigate the role of the iCCR cluster (CCR1, CCR2, CCR3 and CCR5) in health and disease using novel  mouse models targeting this cluster. These include a multi-receptor knock-out (KO), a multi-receptor reporter and a conditional KO strain.

About Marieke

I’m a research fellow and CRG’s resident virologist-turned-immunologist. My research interest is how our immune cells migrate in the context of viral infection, in particular during viral encephalitis. 
After my PhD on transmission and evolution of HIV-1 at Erasmus MC (Rotterdam, NL), I joined Clive McKimmie’s Virus-Host-Interactions Team (VHIT) to work on mosquito-transmitted viruses and learn about cell migration and the immune system.  
In addition to doing science I love science communication, baking, reading and good and bad films.

About Heather

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the CRG. I gained my MSci Immunology degree from the University of Glasgow in 2013 and went on to gain a PhD from the University of Edinburgh, where I studied the macrophage response to Mycobacterium avium subsp. paratuberculosis under the supervision of Prof. Jayne Hope.  I then returned to Glasgow in 2022 and currently study inflammatory chemokine receptor biology at rest and during inflammation using single cell RNA-sequencing.   

I am also the co-chair of the MVLS PACMAN mentorship programme and enjoy public engagement and teaching.  


Pietro Cocchiara

About Pietro

I joined the CRG in November 2023 as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. I gained my MSc in Pharmaceutical Biotechnologies from the University of Padova in 2018 working on new drugs targeting dopaminergic receptors.
I then joined the University of Glasgow for my PhD within the Prof. Graeme Milligan group to work on the effects of interactions between adrenomedullin and CXCR4 and ACKR3. 
As a member of Wellcome Trust team, I currently work on inflammatory chemokine receptors iCCRs and their role in inflammation process” 


Carmen San Martin Martinez

About Carmen

I am a Research Assistant in CRG currently investigating the expression levels of inflammatory chemokine receptors (iCCRs) during macrophage differentiation in both resting and inflammatory conditions. 
I graduated in Health Biology in University of Alcala in Madrid, later specialised in Molecular Biology in Vrije Universiteit of Brussels, and in 2022 finally joined the University of Glasgow to pursue a MRes in Biomedical Sciences. 
Basketball player, and big lover of reading a good book under the sun (when Glasgow´s fantastic weather allows me).
