Shintaro Hoyjo: Helper T cells in chronic inflammation
Thursday, 31 January 2019 || Time: 14:00
Helper T cells in chronic inflammation
Helper T (Th) cells play crucial roles to protection against pathogens. However, they can also be pathogenic driving autoimmune inflammatory diseases. Besides the classical Th1 and Th2 cell subsets, various Th subsets including Th17 and T follicular helper (Tfh) have been currently identified. This lecture will focus on how these subsets contribute to the pathogenesis in autoimmunity, revisiting the old findings.
Campus-Lecture Series on Chronic Inflammatory Diseases
Chronic Inflammatory Diseases are a major health issue without satisfactory treatment despite decades of research. In this lecture series, postdoctoral researchers associated with the Leibniz WissenschaftsCampus Berlin, will present their research areas and perspectives spanning state-of-the-art experimental methods, cellular mechanisms of chronic inflammation, novel therapeutic approaches and drug discovery. The aim is to share experiences, ideas and concepts thereby increasing interest in the complex field of chronic inflammatory diseases among advanced Master’s students and PhD students in all related subjects.
when: 14:00-15:00, weekly, every Thursday
where: DRFZ, Seminar room 3, Charitéplatz 1
visitors: Virchowweg 12
