Mitochondrial Functionality and Metabolism in Human T Cells
Date: 10/13/2020 12pm EST
Sara De Biasi, PhD
University of Modena and Reggio Emilia
About the Presenter
Sara De Biasi obtained her 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. For the last two years, she has studied T cell metabolism with particular interest in mitochondria. Dr. De Biasi is an ISAC Marylou Ingram Scholar and a member of the Cyto U task force.
This webinar will focus on methods to investigate metabolic changes and mithochondria functionality of T cell subpopulations. Data obtained studying T cells in a group of progressive Multiple Sclerosis patients will be discussed.
Upon completion of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Evaluate mitochondria phenotype and functionality
- Evaluate T cell metabolism,
- Evaluate differences 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.
