    Meeting Schedule

    Keynote Speakers

    A/Prof Paul MACARY


    Research Interests

    Immune repertoires, Antibody technology, Infectious diseases. The MacAry laboratory covers a broad spectrum of antibody-related scientific endeavour, from basic B-cell research to industrial applications with an emphasis on antibody biology, immune repertoire mapping and protein engineering. In his presentation, he will detail their recent findings on the form and functionality of T-lymphocyte and Antibody responses in patients infected with or recovered from Dengue Virus.

    Prof WANG Di


    Research Interests

    The major focus of Prof. Di Wang's group is to provide a molecular understanding of immunity and inflammation. They are interested in receptors involved in innate immunity, such as Nod-like receptors (NLRs - including Nlrp3), and also metabolic signals activated. The role played by this system in inflammatory diseases is also under investigation. Meanwhile, they are also interested in the activation and differentiation of immune cells by diverse metabolic mediators and metabolites.

    Prof Nicholas GASCOIGNE


    Research Interests

    Prof. Nicholas Gascoigne has established himself as a leading researcher in cellular and molecular immunology, focusing on the regulation of signalling in T cell activation and development. His lab demonstrated the role of TCR binding strength in thymocyte differentiation, and the importance of CDR1 and 2 TCR sequences in MHC restriction. They developed FRET imaging to analyze interactions between cell surface molecules, particularly TCR and coreceptors, showing that the close apposition of TCR and coreceptor required antigen recognition. In a series of papers from 2005 on, his lab demonstrated the importance of coagonism in CD8 T cell responses to antigen. His lab was one of several to identify and characterize Themis, a protein that controls thymocyte positive selection through regulation of TCR signaling strength. He maintains his interests in T cell signalling, activation, and development, including signal pathways in CAR T cells.
