Speaker Biography: Sara De Biasi obtained PhD in Clinical and Experimental Medicine (Immunology) from the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy in 2013. Most of her work focuses on the variability of adaptive immune response in HIV, autoimmune disease, and cancer. During the last two years, she is studying T cell metabolism with particular interest in mitochondria. Dr. De Biasi is an International Society for Advancement of Cytometry (ISAC) Marylou Ingram Scholar and she is part of the Cyto U task force of the same society.
Upon completion of this webinar, learners will be able to:
- evaluate mitochondria phenotype and functionality,
- evaluate T cells metabolism,
- evaluate differencies among functionally for different T cells
Who should attend:
Researchers who want to learn how to dissect metabolic changes and mitochondrial phenotype and functionality in human T cells in different pathophysiological conditions.
