Next Wednesday, Professor Paul Klenerman will be coming from Oxford to talk about his work on the immune responses to hepatitis C virus (which is a major cause of liver disease globally). The virus can be controlled by natural immunity although typically viral evasion strategies lead to persistence. He will describe attempts to characterise the successful immune response and reproduce this using a vaccine, as well as some quite unexpected features of immune responses in the liver. You can find more information on Paul's work here. All welcome.
Wednesday 28th May, Plymouth Lecture Theatre, Portland Square, 1:00pm
