Public media interest[edit]

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.[3] 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.".[3]

Glennie is a keen angler, winning second prize (Lupa cup) in the Baltimore Deep Sea angling Festival 2014, South West Ireland.[4]
