Poster Award for Patrick Maschmeyer
6.9.2018. At the 5th European Congress of Immunology (ECI, Amsterdam, 2-5 September 2018), 20 scientists from a pool of over 2100 poster presenters, were awarded for “outstanding poster presentation”. Dr Patrick Maschmeyer, Postdoc in the “Therapeutic Gene Regulation” group at the German Rheumatism Research Centre Berlin (DRFZ), a Leibniz Institute, was amongst the awardees. Patrick Maschmeyer was able to show that inhibition of the microRNA-148a by sequence-specific oligonucleotides (antagomir-148a) depletes pro-inflammatory T cells, and that this treatment alleviates symptoms of intestinal inflammation.
