Paul Crocker, Ph.D.
Paul Crocker is a Professor of Glycoimmunology and Head of the Division of Cell Signaling and Immunology at the University of Dundee in Scotland. Paul is a world leader in the study of glycan-dependent regulation of immune and inflammatory responses. He was a pioneer in the discovery of the Siglecs, a family of glyco-immune checkpoints found on immune cell surfaces that recognizes sialic acid-containing structures and regulates immune responses. Paul’s understanding of the differences in immune pattern recognition between humans and other species provides a significant advantage and proprietary know-how to Palleon’s drug discovery platform.
