Immunology Forum Seminar Series Featuring Dr. Alexander Rudensky
Molecular Mechanisms of Differentiation and Function of Regulatory T Cells
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Los Angeles, California 90095
Alexander Rudensky, Ph.D.
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center
Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Dr. Rudensky's research is focused on understanding the molecular mechanisms governing the differentiation and function of CD4 T lymphocytes and their role in immunity and tolerance. Major areas of interest for his lab include: the molecular and cellular mechanisms governing the differentiation and function of regulatory T cells, and the roles these cells play in control of autoimmunity, tumor immunity and immunity to infections, and in the maintenance of immune homeostasis at environmental interfaces.
