CPM-URIA/IMM Seminar: The Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome: How can impaired phagocytosis lead to increased autoimmunity? 30 de Abril (das 12h00 às 13h00)

WAS involves immunodeficiency, thrombocytopenia, severe eczema, and multiple forms of autoimmunity. The most common of the latter is autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA). Our lab has shown an increased rate of platelet consumption in WASP(-) mice, and similar observations have been made in clinical WAS. We also have evidence that antiplatelet antibodies contribute to the thrombocytopenia. Yet several labs have demonstrated that WASP deficient macrophages show impaired phagocytosis.
One would expect the latter to impair the in vivo development of autoimmune syndromes such as AIHA, but it apparently does not. How can these findings be reconciled?

Seminar: "LFA1 integrin,a key modulator of T cell crawling on HEVs, T-DC interactions and effector/memory commitment during LCMV infection"
dia 20 de Maio (das 12h00 às 13:00) Edifício Egas Moniz - Piso 01 - Sala57

António Peixoto

Harvard Medical School (Boston, MA)

Convidado: Henrique Veiga Fernandes

António Peixoto did his PhD work with Benedita Rocha at the Necker Institute, in Paris, where he characterised the patterns of lymphocyte differentiation during in vivo immune responses at a single cell level. Currently he is a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School (Boston, MA) in the laboratory of Ulrich H. von Andrian. Using two photon intravital microscopy, he has focused his interests on the mechanisms that regulate the interaction, the timing and the nature of signals that are exchanged between lymphocytes and antigen presenting cells in vivo.
