Lectures and seminars Invited talk: Prof. Lars Nitschke
Role of Siglecs in autoimmunity and CLL development
Prof. Lars Nitschke (University of Erlangen) will give an invited talk concerning "Role of Siglecs in autoimmunity and CLL development" at Karolinska Institute.
Prof Nitschke is a scientist working in the field of B cell immunology with a major research focus on the regulation of B cell immunity, B cell signalling and autoimmunity. His main research focus is on inhibitory receptors (Siglecs) on immune cells as regulators of lymphocyte activation. With newly generated genetic mouse models he studies the regulation of immune responses and the dysregulation of the immune system in autoimmune diseases.
Prof Nitschke studied at the University of Freiburg, Germany. For his PhD, he went to the Max-Planck-Institute in Freiburg into the laboratory of Georges Koehler, where he also stayed on as a postdoctoral fellow. Following on from this, Prof Nitschke took up a laboratory head position at the Institute for Immunology and Virology at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany. After that he became a Professor for Genetics at the University of Erlangen, Germany.
