Dr Chee is a consultant clinical immunologist who speacilises in diseases of the immune system such as primary immunodeficiency or congenital forms of immunological deficiency. My main research interest is unravelling the aetiology of nodular regenerative hyperoplasia in patients with common variable immunodeficiency. Dr Chee research interests focus on the interaction of the immune system and the microbiota.
