Tumour Microenvironment-driven Immune Suppression in Lymphoid Malignancies

Location

LT3 | Royal Free Campus (link Map)
Rowland Hill Street | Hampstead | London | NW3 2PF | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

Part of the UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation Seminar Series.

Speaker: Dr Alan G. Ramsay, Senior Lecturer/PI in Lymphoma Biology, King’s College London

Dr Ramsay leads a research group focussing on translational research in cancer immunology. His research in the chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and lymphoma field has characterised novel tumour cell-induced T-cell immune evasion mechanisms and translated bench science to clinical trials with immunotherapy.

This work includes pre-clinical definition of CLL and lymphoma tumour cells co-opting multiple immune checkpoint molecules to suppress T-cell lytic immune synapse function ('adaptive immune resistance').

The lecture is being hosted by Professor Ron Chakraverty.
