Event Details

The symposium is being held in honour of Professor David Katz , Professor of Immunopathology  at UCL on the occasion of his retirement.  Professor Katz’s career spans the immunological era of the antigen presenting cell, and it is remarkable that these questions on which he has worked for several decades, and to which he has made many notable contributions, remain to this day at the forefront of research into many of the world’s most serious diseases.

The injured sentinel : the pathophysiology of the antigen presenting cell

The antigen presenting cell lies at the interface between innate and adaptive immunity, playing the role of sentinel  of the vertebrate microbial defence system.  This role exposes these cells to a unique challenge:  the antigen presenting cell must sense and respond to microbial invasion, and associated micro environmental damage and stress , while itself avoiding infection, injury and death. This symposium brings together an international interdisciplinary group of scientists, to explore the unique adaptations which allow cells to survive and function at this dangerous frontier, and to dissect the contributions of antigen presenting cell injury to disease.
