January 20 @ 7:15 pm

In this lecture, Prof. Dustin introduced the “immunological synapse”, the specialized junction between immune cells and their targets. Thereby, he discussed three recent examples concerning
1. molecular dynamics in the context of cancer immunotherapy;
2. the inhibition of the immunological synapse by plasmodium;
3. “protein bombs” from T-cells killing cancerous and infected cells
