Steve Todryk, Ph.D.

Chief Scientific Officer, CTL Europe

Personal Statement

I have over 30 years’ experience working in academic environments on cellular immunology, with a focus on T cell and B cell responses in the context of infections, vaccines, allergy, autoimmunity, cancer, and transplantation. The monitoring of the underlying immune responses, using powerful technologies such as Immunospot®, can provide informative biomarkers as well as give insights into key immunological mechanisms. As the Chief Scientific Officer of CTL Europe, I provide scientific leadership, support and liaisons for our European customers, as well as opportunities for collaborative academic research and for contract research. I advocate our belief that ImmunoSpot® is within everyone’s reach.
