Professor Tim Elliott of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Southampton will be speaking at the UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation Seminar Series on Thursday 07 March. The seminar will be held in Lecture Theatre 3 at the UCL Medical School Royal Free Campus.

Professor Elliott was amongst the key group of immunologists who developed studies of antigen presentation at the molecular level during the 1980s, undertaking a series of studies to determine and define the immunostimulatory properties of MHC Class I molecules and elucidating the molecular mechanisms of co-factor assisted peptide loading of MHC Class I in antigen presenting cells: work considered to be the fundamental foundation of much of the recent work on antigen presentation. The work underpins rational T-cell based vaccine design and continues to fuel translational research in Southampton where discoveries in the areas of antigen discovery, T cell regulation and immunodominance are making a significant impact on new and ongoing cancer immunotherapy trials.

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