I4Q on 27 August 2020: Immunological Memory and Vaccines

The next seminar in the Immunology for Quants series will be on August 27th, 2020 and presented by Dr. Stella Berendam. The seminar will be a webinar between noon and 1pm.

Our seminar on Thursday will cover Immunological Memory and Vaccines.

This session will provide the bird’s eyes view of innate and adaptive immunological memory systems, how they are maintained, and their relevance to vaccine designs.

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. Seminars are held on Thursdays from 12-1 pm.

For the Zoom meeting information please email Richard Barfield.

I4Q Seminar on April 30th : How does COVID-19 kill? The immunobiology of SARS-CoV-2

How does COVID-19 kill? The immunobiology of SARS-CoV-2

The ongoing severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic has resulted in ~850,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) illness and nearly 47,000 deaths. While the majority of cases are mild to moderate, ~15% of COVID-19 cases result in severe disease including acute respiratory distress syndrome, cytokine release syndrome, and potentially death. But there is much uncertainty as to why some patients progress to severe COVID-19 illness and others do not. Join our I4Q seminar on Thursday, April 30th at noon for a discussion with Stephanie Langel on the immunobiology of SARS-CoV-2 and how the immune response plays a role in COVID-19 mortality.

For the Zoom meeting information please email Richard Barfield.

Next Seminar on March 5th: Antigen Presentation

The next seminar in the Immunology for Quants series will be on March 5th, 2020 and presented by Cliburn Chan. 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 – antigen presentation, the process by which short peptide fragments are presented to lymphocytes.

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.

Next Seminar on Jan 23rd: T-cell Activation

The next seminar in the Immunology for Quants series will be on January 23rd, 2020 and presented by Cliburn Chan. The seminar will be held at Hock Plaza in classroom 11100 between noon and 1pm.

Unlike antibodies, T cells can “look” inside proteins and inside cells, and this is essential for defense against intracellular pathogens and tumors. This seminar reviews how T cells achieve this feat, looking at T cell activation in terms of 1) the TCR – peptide: MHC interaction, 2) signal transduction via the CD3 complex and the role of the CD4/CD8 co-receptor,  3) downstream pathways that affect transcription, metabolism, cytoskeleton and formation of the immune synapse, and 4) co-stimulation and co-inhibition molecules that regulate T cell activation.

In this seminar we will discuss  Adaptive Immunity. Topics to be covered include: the dynamic course of infection and the antigen-specific response to infection; the role of T and B cells in responding to infection, immunological memory, and the measurement of adaptive immunity.
