Advanced Therapies seminar success
Thursday July 27, 2023
We were delighted to welcome Dr Cristiano Scottà to present the first seminar of the NHIP Advanced Therapies seminar series on Wednesday 19th July.
Dr Scottà joined us from the Peter Gorer Department of Immunobiology at King’s College London, where he is a Translational Research Coordinator specialising in regulatory T cells. The seminar gave a fascinating insight into the tolerogenic properties of regulatory T cells and the translation of the results into clinical practice.
We heard about the use of cell therapy to manipulate regulatory T cells, ex vivo, and how this can improve their functional stability and capacity to target the correct tissue as well as how crosstalk between regulatory T cells and other immune cells can identify new therapeutic targets for the treatment of inflammatory diseases.
The talk also gave an insight into the heterogeneity of regulatory T cells with the characterisations of a cell subset involved in the control of skin immune homeostasis.
We would like to thank Dr Scottà for delivering a fantastic presentation and thanks to those who joined online.
The next NHIP Advanced Therapies Satellite seminar will take place on 15th September, when Professor Michela Guglieri will be presenting on the Advanced Therapies portfolio at the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre.
Please look out for further details on how to sign up for this seminar which will be circulated soon.
