The clinical trial of an anti-CD40 monoclonal antibody chiLOB7/4 developed in Glennie's laboratory was reported by The Daily Telegraph in August 2013. Glennie stressed that “Ipilimumab works by taking the brakes off part of the immune system called T cells, while our compound revs up the T cells – it is like giving them a caffeine hit.".
Glennie is a keen angler, winning second prize (Lupa cup) in the Baltimore Deep Sea angling Festival 2014, South West Ireland.
