Immune responses in the intestinal mucosa: Inflammation versus immunoregulation
We proudly present the speaker of our LOCOTACT Lecture in October 2022:
Prof. Dr. Astrid Westendorf (Institute of Medical Microbiology; University Hospital Essen)
Prof. Westendorf's research group studies the mechanisms responsible for the induction and control of a mucosal immune response. They are addressing tolerance induction in the gut, gastrointestinal infections and focus on developing nanoparticle-based therapeutic approaches. They investigate the extent to which intestinal inflammation influences the development of colorectal cancer.
All interested are welcome to attend our LOCOTACT Lectures!
The online lecture takes place via Zoom.
