The UCL Cancer Institute is hosting a new series of Immunology Seminars aiming to showcase leading, cutting edge Immunology research to scientists across UCL and the Cancer institute.
The Cancer Institute has organised this seminar series with the specific goal of bringing together the immunology and cancer community in London in order to foster interaction, collaboration and to demonstrate, through cutting edge seminars, how the understanding of the basic principles governing the function of the immune system is fundamental to the development of novel and powerful cancer therapeutics.
In addition to meeting with Cancer Institute group leaders during the day, we have organised a “Lunch with the speaker” (for Postdocs and Students) to promote scientific discussion within our graduate and postdoctoral community.
Seminars will be held at 5 pm on the Courtyard Café of the Paul O’Gorman Building. A drinks reception will be held after each seminar.

"Developmental and Viral Control of Programmed Necrosis"
Professor Kaiser, Department of Microbiology and Immunology; Emory University; USA
Professor Kaiser’s laboratory focuses on defining the role of RIP1/RIP3 kinases in inflammation and programmed cell death following activation of death receptor and pathogen recognition receptor pathways, and disease caused by dysregulation of these kinases as well as pathogen subversion strategies will be interrogated. He also focuses on directed therapies aimed at modulating necrotic cell death will emerge from a more defined understanding of RIP kinases in host defence and in controlling cell fate.
