As part of its Lecture Series on Infection & Immunity, the Luxembourg Institute of Health is organising a lecture on the topic ‘Born Different: Metabolic Maintenance of Asymmetric Cell Death in T Cells’ on Thursday, 29 September.
Speaker is Prof. Douglas Green, Chair of the Department of Immunology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, USA.
Prof. Green was the first to describe activation-induced apoptosis in T lymphocytes and was involved in many signature discoveries in the cell death field: the role of the oncogene Myc in driving apoptosis, the ability of BCL-2 proteins to block cell death, the functions of death receptors in cell death and the immune system, and the mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis. So far, he has published more than 500 scientific articles and is one of the world’s most cited molecular biologists.
This lecture series is supported by the FNR’s RESCOM: Scientific Events programme
