We are very pleased to announce that this month's guest is Dr Simon Arthur from the College of Life Sciences, University of Dundee. http://www.lifesci.dundee.ac.uk/people/simon-arthur
Simon will be giving a presentation entitled: "Intra-cellular signalling pathways in the regulation of immune responses"
5pm next Thursday, September 18th 2014 in room 2.21, Research Beehive, Newcastle University (Refreshments will be available from 4.30 pm).
The interests of the Arthur laboratory lie in signalling networks that control inflammation, with a particular focus on the roles that cells of the innate immune system play in coordinating inflammation and how they contribute to activation of adaptive immunity via the production of cytokines.
If you would like to speak to Simon during his visit please contact Graeme O'Boyle: Graeme.O'Boyle@sunderland.ac.uk
