TB or not TB? The fight for immunity. Inaugural lecture of Professor Jayne Hope. The Roslin Institute, Easter Bush Campus, Edinburgh
January 27 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pmFree
This inaugural lecture will discuss work carried out by Professor Hope starting with her PhD studies of the immune response to chemical allergens in mice. This led to a career-long interest in dendritic cells and innate immunity that is now being applied to studies of vaccines for tuberculosis in cows. The lecture will discuss differences in the immune response between mice and cows (and humans) that are important for vaccine design and delivery for important infectious diseases such as TB.
This lecture is free and open to all.
