Dr Pavel Tolar of the Francis Crick Institute will be speaking at the UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation Seminar Series on Thursday 17 January. The seminar will be held in Lecture Theatre 3 at the UCL Medical School Royal Free Campus.

Pavel Tolar obtained an MD degree at Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, and a PhD in immunology at the Institute of Molecular Genetics in Prague, where he studied activation of mast cells. In 2003, he joined the National Institutes of Health, Rockville, Maryland, USA, as a postdoctoral fellow to work with Susan Pierce on the development of live-cell imaging technology for the study of intracellular B cell signalling pathways.

In 2009, he moved to the MRC National Institute for Medical Research as a programme leader in the Division of Immune Cell Biology to work on the structural, molecular and cellular mechanisms of antigen-mediated B cell activation. He was awarded the EMBO Young Investigator Award in 2013 and became a group leader at the Francis Crick Institute in 2015.

All are welcome to attend. If you would like to meet the speaker after the seminar please contact Mahdia Sait.
