Webinar Live Cell Imaging: Cell-Cell Interactions

Aí vai sugestão de um webinar, organizado pela Cell Press:

Tema: Live Cell Imaging: Cell-Cell Interactions
Dia: 24 de maio 2012
Horário: 1:00pm (horário de Brasília)
Duração: 60 minutos
Cells communicate and interact with one another to transmit signals and initiate reactions that facilitate coordinated events. These interactions are critical in almost every aspect of physiology, from transmitting neuronal signals that allow us to sense hot and cold to initiating immune responses that fight against infection. Recent advances in live-cell imaging have allowed us to view these cell-cell interactions in real time and broadened our understanding and appreciation for the complexity of this cross-talk between cells. In this interactive webinar, you will hear from renowned scientists who use live-cell imaging to study not only how cell-cell communication facilitates neuronal and immune cell interactions, but also how these modes of communication can be altered in the context of infection to promote pathogen transmission.

      Jeff Lichtman
Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology, Harvard University

Dr. Jeff Lichtman is a Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology at Harvard University. He is interested in the mechanisms that underlie synaptic competition between neurons that innervate the same target cell. Such competitive interactions are responsible for sharpening the patterns of neural connections during development and may also be important in learning and memory formation. His laboratory studies synaptic competition by visualizing synaptic rearrangements directly in living animals using modern optical imaging techniques.
      Quentin Sattentau
Professor of Immunology, University of Oxford

Dr. Quentin Sattentau is a Professor of Immunology at the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford. He uses live and fixed cell imaging techniques to investigate the molecular cell biology of HIV-1 interactions with its target cells. His laboratory previously showed that HIV-1 induces a “virological synapse” in T cells to promote cell-cell spread of the virus and is currently investigating the interactions between HIV-1-infected T cells and macrophages.
      Dr. Ellen Robey
Professor of Immunology and Pathogenesis, University of California, Berkeley

Dr. Ellen Robey is a Professor of Immunology and Pathogenesis in the Department of Molecular & Cell Biology at the University of California, Berkeley. Research in the Robey lab is focused on understanding the development and function of the mammalian immune system. Recently her lab has been at the forefront of applying advanced microscopy to directly visualize the immune system in action. The 2 main current areas of focus are T cell development in the thymus and immune responses to the intracellular protozoan parasite, Toxoplasma gondii.
