IIG Seminar - Immunological Mechanisms of Cancer Defense: Reining in Dynamic Cancer Cell and Microenvironment Reciprocity
IIG Seminar The immune system employs two distinct defense strategies against infections: microbe-directed pathogen destruction typified by type 1 immunity, and host-directed pathogen containment exemplified by type 2 immunity in induction of tissue repair. Akin to infectious diseases, cancer progresses with cancer cell acquisition of microorganism-like behavior propagating at the expense of the host. While immunological mechanisms of cancer cell destruction are well defined, whether immune-mediated cancer cell containment can be induced is poorly understood. In this presentation, I will discuss how type 2 immunity can be ...

IIG Seminar: Defining malaria vaccine responses by single B cell IG sequencing and plasma IgG proteomics
IIG Seminar Malaria elimination is a global priority and WHO has projected that malaria deaths could double due to COVID19-related health care disruptions. Vaccines have been pivotal for campaigns to eliminate or eradicate other infectious diseases. Malaria transmission blocking vaccines (TBVs) target surface antigens expressed by parasites during their development in mosquitoes in order to interrupt transmission and contribute to malaria elimination. We collected antigen-specific memory B cells from Malian adults immunized with TBV and obtained B cell receptor IG sequences that were used to define the antibody repertoire ...
