ICVS International Seminars - Andrea Cooper, Trudeau Institute, USA - October 16th, 12.00, Auditorium A0.02

Andrea Cooper is a senior faculty member at the Trudeau Institute in New York, USA. The bacterium causing tuberculosis has existed within the human population since antiquity and can manipulate the human immune response to achieve its own goals. Dr. Cooper’s laboratory is working to understand precisely how the bacterium alters the immune response in order to improve vaccines against tuberculosis and other diseases of the lung. Understanding how the body responds to bacteria also helps ...

ICVS International Seminars 2014 - Reuven Agami, Netherlands Cancer Institute, Netherlands - April 17th, 12.00, Auditorium Zulmira Simões

Reuven Agami is a Professor at the Molecular Genetics Department, at the Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, and Head of the Division of Gene Regulation at the Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam. During his research he identified a novel DNA-damage-induced apoptosis pathway that requires the activation of c-Abl kinase and tyrosine phosphorylation of the p53 homologue-p73a. As a post-doc he identified molecular events that initiate p53-independent DNA damage response. In September 2001, h ...
