Lectures and seminars Nicholson lecture 2022 - Professor Michel C. Nussenzweig
Welcome to the Nicholson lecture 2022 given by Michel C. Nussenzweig, M,D, PhD with the title: On the role of antibodies in disease prevention and therapy
This year KI has the honor to welcome Michel C. Nussenzweig, M.D, PhD, as speaker at the Nicholson Lecture 2022.
Nussenzweig’s laboratory studies the molecular aspects of the immune system’s innate and adaptive responses using a combination of biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetics. For work on adaptive immunity, he focuses on B lymphocytes and antibodies to HIV-1, while his studies of innate immunity focus on dendritic cells. His work is leading to new antibody-based therapies for infections by HIV and the novel SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, among other viruses.
Registration is now closed. Refreshments will be served after the lecture.
