Infectious Clues to Primary Immunodeficiencies
Professor Andrew Cant

Professor Cant has practiced medicine for 36 years. In 1990, he was appointed as a Consultant in Newcastle, UK, to set up 1 of 2 national referral centres for the treatment of children with severe immunological disorders, and a regional paediatric infectious diseases service. The service has grown and the Unit is now recognised as a world leader for radical curative treatments for childhood immune disorders.
