CD4+ T cells: modulators of immune flexibility


Davis Auditorium

Join via TEAMS

Including Q&A session



Our immune system works to protect against different types of pathogens, such as viral, bacterial, fungal and helminth infections. CD4+ T cells are a key component of the immune system that enables the extraordinary level of flexibility required to provide protection to these varied pathogens. This seminar will outline the process of CD4+ T cell differentiation and function which enables tailored immune responses, and how this can go awry during inflammatory disease. 


Associate Professor Joanna Groom is an NHMRC Investigator fellow and laboratory head in the Immunology division of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (WEHI), Melbourne Australia. Dr Groom’s current research combines imaging and transcriptional analysis to dissect the cellular interactions that mediate protection against diverse pathogenic infections and cancer.
