Immunology NE Thursday 6th November: Human Dendritic Cell Subsets

INE for November will take place at 4pm (refreshments from 3.30pm) on the 6th November in Lecture Theatre D of the Dental School, Newcastle University. Please note a change to the usual time and place.

Dr Elodie Segura will present a talk entitled "Functional specialization of human dendritic cell subsets".


Biography
After completing a PhD on the immune functions of dendritic cell-derived exosomes in 2006 at the Institut Curie under the supervision of Clotilde Théry, Elodie Segura was a post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of José Villadangos at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute (Melbourne, Australia) working on the functional specialization of murine DC subsets (2006-2009). From 2010, she was a senior post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of Sebastian Amigorena at the Institut Curie where she developped human DC subsets studies. She was recruited as "Chargé de Recherche" (permanent position) in 2012. She was the laureate of the 2012Biolegend "Young Investigator Award" awarded by the European Federation of Immunological Societies.
