Dendritic Cells in RA

Our very own, Gary Reynolds...

 

 

VIVA SEMINAR

 

Speaker:  Gary Reynolds

 

Supervisors: Prof J Isaacs, Dr C Hilkens

 

 

Title : The origin and function of CD1c+ dendritic cells in rheumatoid arthritis

 

Abstract: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a common autoimmune disease in which CD4+ T cells play a central role. The major subset of human myeloid dendritic cells identified by expression of CD1c+ specialises in modulating CD4+ T cell adaptive immune responses. As such they may represent a therapeutic target. In this work the origin and function of this DC subset in RA is explored.
