III Seminar

Speaker: Jamie Rossjohn, Monash University

Title: T cell receptor recognition of non peptide-based antigens.

Abstract:

Prof. Rossjohn, NHMRC Australia Fellow at Monash University, is recognised for his contributions to the understanding the function and dysfunction of the immune system.  He has used structural biology to explain T-cell development, and how the T-cell receptor combats viruses, causes autoimmunity, drug and food hypersensitivities. He has pioneered our understanding of lipid-based immunity by T-cells and recently showed how vitamin B metabolites represent an entirely new target for T-cells.
