Randy Lindquist: Chronic inflammation and cancer

Event date

Thursday, 13 December 2018 || Time: 14:00


Delineation

Virchow noticed this association 150 years ago, that many sites of chronic inflammation are associated with the subsequent development of cancer. Genetic evidence has clarified the mechanisms by which this occurs, how chronic inflammatory signaling can induce the development of certain lymphoid and non-lymphoid malignancies, and how inhibition of inflammation can prevent this. Recently, the development of immune-modulating drugs to induce anti-tumor T cell responses has shown the converse of this, how tumors use chronic exposure to antigen to desensitize T cells and prevent adaptive immune responses to tumor neoantigens. Better understanding of the mechanisms by which peripheral tolerance is maintained, and how this is manipulated by cancers, can lead to improved therapies.

• understand one inflammatory disease – cure them all?

…. these and further topics will be covered in the new Lecture Series given by our Postdoc Fellows.

Topics
miRNA +++ drug discovery +++ imaging +++ cancer +++ RNA-based gene regulation +++ immune checkpoints as therapeutic targets +++ T cells +++ mass cytometry ++ plasma cell targeting +++ RA and cardiovascular disease +++ optical ethods +++ stromal niches

Speakers
Stefan Frischbutter +++ Patrick Maschmeyer +++ Randall Lindquist +++ Gitta Heinz +++ Marina Babic-Cac +++ Shintaro Hoyjo +++ Axel Schulz +++ Laleh Khodadadi +++ Yvette Meissner +++ Asylkhan Rakhymzhan +++ Daniel Schulz

In the ScienceCampus we aim at transferring research and therapeutic concepts from one disease to another – across disciplines – for a fast translation into the clinic.
