Clonal Selection of T Cells


Lecture Theatre 3 | Royal Free Campus (link Map)
Rowland Hill Street | Hampstead | London | NW3 2PF | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Student

UCL Institute of Immunity and Transplantation Seminar Series.

Speaker: Dr George Kassiotis, The Francis Crick Institute.

George Kassiotis took his PhD in Immunology at the Hellenic Pasteur Institute in Athens, Greece. In 2000, he moved to the NIMR in London working first as a post-doctoral fellow and later as a programme leader. He has recently moved to the new Francis Crick Institute. George’s research focus is on the immune response to viruses and he has a particular interest in the CD4+ T cell response to retroviruses, including their role in the control of endogenous retroviruses. He has recently published on how the T cell repertoire can be preserved during an antiviral immune response despite clonal selection and on whether all clonotypes are equally effective at controlling retroviruses.

PhD students and post-docs are invited to attend a pizza lunch with the speaker following the seminar.
