Mastering IHC staining experiments

Porcine Webinar

CD4+ T lymphocytes and their antigen-specific immune response

Does your research involve assaying T cell responses in swine?

Do you want to better define T helper cell populations and the role of these subsets in porcine immunology?

Watch this webinar to find out how researchers at the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna are elucidating the intricacies of the porcine CD4+ T cell immune response. The focus is on discoveries made on the characterization and function of T cell subsets with emphasis on CD4+ regulatory T cells (Tregs), IL-17A-producing TH17 cells, TH1 cells and the role of CD27 in defining memory T cells.

This talk is be of interest to researchers seeking to:

  • Develop improved vaccines and define tools for measurement of correlates of protection
  • Characterize porcine T helper, suppressor and memory cell populations
  • Advance the knowledge of porcine disease pathogenesis and translational research

Webinar: Porcine CD4+ T lymphocytes and their antigen-specific immune response

Presented by: Professor Armin Saalmüller, University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna, Austria



Speaker Biography:

Professor Armin Saalmüller holds the Chair of the Institute of Immunology and is the Head of the Department of Pathobiology at the University of Veterinary Medicine Vienna, Austria. He received his PhD from the Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen. His group's research work is focused on porcine T cells and cellular immune responses against viral infections. Current priorities are the detection of these immune responses and identification of immune cells and their functional characterization, and to gain a better understanding of the interaction of the immune system with pathogens. Working with leading vaccine manufacturers, the ultimate goal is to contribute to the development of new or improved vaccines and to improve diagnostic tests.
