Next Seminar on Feb 20th: B cells and antibodies

The next seminar in the Immunology for Quants series will be on February 20th, 2020 and presented by Stella Berendam. The seminar will be held at Hock Plaza in classroom 11100 between noon and 1pm.

Our seminar on Thursday will cover another major cell type of the adaptive immune system – the B cell. We will learn a little about B cell development, activation, and antibody production. In addition, we will discuss some of the commonly used antibody-based assay in the laboratory.

The Immunology for Quants talks are biweekly, informal seminars that are designed to introduce immunology and immune-related diseases to non-immunologists. Topics are generally self-contained and questions during the seminar are encouraged, so it is not strictly necessary (but recommended) to attend them in sequence. Seminars are held on Thursdays from 12-1 pm.
