Pediatrics Research Seminar Series: Cancer Progression Is Driven By Double-Edged Leukocytes Influenced By Genetic Variation
The Department of Pediatrics Research invites investigators with expertise in the field of pediatric tumors or relevant areas of research to present the recent findings to faculty, students and post-doctoral fellows.
Date: 2/12/13, 9am to 10am
Time: 2/12/13, 9am to 10am
Location: Smith Research Building, Conference SRB1.122
Facilitator: Vidya Gopalakrishnan, PhD
Speaker: Jose R. Conejo-Garca, MD, PhD
Speaker Bio: Dr. Jose R. Conejo-Garcia is an Associate Professor with the Wistar Institute. Dr. Conejo-Garcia's current research explores the biology of a subset of immune cells known as dendritic cells, which are co-opted by ovarian tumors to protect them from the immune system as a whole, rather than boosting protective immune responses His laboratory has discovered that eliminating these immune cells from the tumor microenvironment kills ovarian tumor cells and may slow aggressive forms of the cancer.
