"Tracking Humans – Getting the Bang for the Buck from High Dimensional Immune Monitoring" Monday, October 30, 2017 12:00-1:00 PM Upper Auditorium (Room 3-7619)

Seminar Abstract: Over the past sixty years, immunologists have made a tremendous progress in developing a basic understanding of how the immune system works. Yet our current understanding of how the immune system varies and how this relates to clinical outcome is close to nil. Technological advances now enable precise measurements of multiple biological layers of the immune system in humans and at high bandwidth – offering opportunity to study immune variation where it matters most. In this talk I will describe our work tracking immune variation and share some thoughts and possible solutions to what is needed to move from high bandwidth immunology to a true Systems Immunology. phenotype that consequently influenced Haemophilus biofilm architecture. We currently investigate the dynamic interplay between microbe-expressed virulence factors and host nutritional limitation through characterization of proteomic and metabolomic signatures of disease.

Russell Vance, Ph.D. Professor Department of Microbiology and Immunology University of California, Berkeley Berkeley, CA

Host: Michelle Dziejman "Strategies for Cytosolic Surveillance of Bacterial Pathogens" Monday, November 6, 2017 12:00-1:00 PM Upper Auditorium (Room 3-7619)

Seminar Abstract: To initiate responses to infection, the innate immune system deploys germline-encoded receptors that detect conserved microbial ligands. In response, pathogens attempt to evade innate immune recognition by alteration of the recognized ligands. Such struggles between pathogens and their hosts are sometimes referred to as evolutionary arms races. Given that large population sizes and short generation times provide pathogens with a vast potential capacity for rapid evolution to evade immune surveillance, an interesting question is how the innate immune system is able to maintain recognition of mutable pathogen ligands over evolutionary time. In my seminar, I hope to provide some insight into this question by discussing our recent structural and functional work on a family of cytosolic innate immune sensors called inflammasomes.
