Speaker: Dr Catharien Hilkens, Musculoskeletal Research Group, University of Newcastle

Catharien has had a long research career investigating the interactions between Dendritic cells and T cells. She did her PhD in Amsterdam and then moved to the London Research Institute with an EMBO fellowship to carry out post-doctoral research to continue her interest in DC. In 2003 she moved to Newcastle to set up her own lab studying immune tolerance and the use of DC as an immunotherapeutic tool. Catharien is currently running one of the first clinical trials using tolerogenic DC in patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis.
