‘Immune cell metabolism in health and disease’ – Wednesday 30th May – Imperial College London

Wed. 30 May, 2018 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Wed. 30 May, 2018 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm
This event does not repeat

The British Society for Immunology’s London Immunology Group is pleased to present ‘Immune cell metabolism in health and disease‘ taking place on Wednesday 30 May 2018 at Imperial College London, South Kensington Campus, 14.00 – 18.00pm.

Immunometabolism is an emerging field that investigates how the metabolic processes of immune cells affect their roles in disease. Interest in this field is gaining momentum due to the realisation that changes in how cells utilise energy underlies many inflammatory responses, and that manipulating cellular metabolism can beneficially enhance or reduce inflammation. During this half day meeting, we will discuss how the inflammatory environment and cellular metabolism are integrated to regulate immune cell function. It is anticipated this meeting will be of broad interest to researchers working in the fields of immunology and/or metabolism and those interested in therapeutic approaches which target metabolic processes.

We are pleased to invite you and any interested colleagues to attend our inaugural ‘Medicine at the Crick’ event, entitled “Gene and Gene-Editing Therapy: A new challenge and opportunity in Clinical Medicine”, to be held on Thursday 28 June 2018, 2.30pm-7pm, at the Francis Crick Institute, London.

Our new ‘Medicine at the Crick‘ event series aims to showcase major advances in biomedical science and raise awareness of the medical implications of major scientific advances amongst the Crick and wider UK biomedical community.

The format is a series of short talks, followed by a keynote lecture and a panel discussion. We chose the theme of gene therapy and gene editing to launch the series. The event will be led by Professor Robin Lovell-Badge from the Crick and the keynote lecture will be given by Professor Matthew Porteus from Stanford University. Other speakers and panellists include Dr Claire Booth (UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health), Professor Sarah Tabrizi (UCL Institute of Neurology), Dr Sarah Chan (University of Edinburgh) and Nick Meade (Genetic Alliance UK).

About Transnetyx:

Transnetyx was born by launching the world’s first fully-automated genotyping system for detecting transgenic, knock-out, knock-in, SNP, and now CRISPR mutations in mouse lines. Later, it added lines for zebrafish, rabbits, ferrets, goats, and rats. The mission of Transnetyx, then and now, is to help scientists accelerate research with fast, easy, and accurate real-time PCR genotyping.

Fast forward to today, and Transnetyx has genotyped more than 16 million samples in 24 or 72 hours with 99.97% accuracy. It has also built an inventory of more than 20,000 assays and more than 10,000 MGI and JAX lines.

Today, Transnetyx is the trusted automated genotyping resource for thousands of researchers in universities, hospitals, and bioscience companies around the world.

 

Transnetyx will also be holding a Seminar in the Lister & Young Seminar room from 11am – 12pm.

We are pleased to welcome Dr Ines Sequeira from Kings College London to present a Special Seminar at the BCI on Tuesday 23rd April. For more information about Dr Sequeira’s research, please click here.

The seminar is titled: The role of Keratins in modulating carcinogenesis via communication with cells of the immune system’

The seminar will be held in the Lister and Young Seminar Room, 12 - 1pm.

If you would like to arrange to talk with Dr Sequeira, please contact Denise Gardner (d.gardner@qmul.ac.uk).  

Bio:

Inês Sequeira is a part-time post-doctoral scientist at the Centre for Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine and St John’s Institute of Dermatology, at King’s College London. She also holds the role of Head of the Dermis Physiology Research Group at L’Oréal Advanced Research centre.

After her PhD at Institut Pasteur studying epithelial stem cells heterogeneity by combining clonal analysis, 3D imaging and quantitative modelling, she joined the laboratory of Prof. Fiona Watt to pursue her research on oral cancer. She developed her line of research using a mouse model for oral cancer, establishing methodologies that were entirely new to the lab. She uncovered a novel immunoregulatory role for Keratin 76 modulating tumour development. Another aspect of her research on oral cancer focuses in understanding the tongue tumours’ cellular and genomic heterogeneity. In collaboration with the Sanger Institute, they dissected the genomic landscape of mouse oral tumours to correlate the tumour biology and cell behaviour, in order to understand the early events of tumour development in the oral epithelia.
