TItle: The Changing Landscape of Human B Cell Memory

Speaker:   Shiv Pillai, PhD, MD, Professor of Medicine and Health Sciences, Harvard Medical School, Ragon Institute of MGH, MIT and Harvard


Human and murine adaptive immune memory is best understood in the CD8+ T cell context. However, B cell memory is extremely relevant to protection from infections as well as to  include autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, many of which respond to B cell depletion.  In this talk I will present recent work on two distinct human memory B cell populations. I will draw parallels with our current approach to classifying T cell memory and discuss the likely high relevance of extrafollicular B cell memory to human disease. 

Host: Pablo Penaloza-MacMaster, PhD, Assistant Professor, Dept. Of Microbiology-Immunology
