A view on the research of human disorders associated with an up-regulation of type I intereferons by Yanick Crow (The University of Edinburgh, UK).

Yanick Crow is a clinical scientist (MD-PhD) and Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences, working at the MRC Institute of Genetics and Cancer, Edinburgh, UK and the Imagine Institute, Paris, France. He has an interest in monogenic disorders associated with an up-regulation of type I interferons - a set of inborn errors of immunity resulting from abnormal sensing, inappropriate stimulation, or defective negative regulation of the type I interferon system. Understanding these so-called type I interferonopathies has the potential to provide insights into immunological homeostasis, mechanisms of self / non-self discrimination and viral immunity.
