Title: Engineering IL-2 for Control of Autoimmunity

Speaker: Daniel Campbell, PhD,  Member and Director, Center for Fundamental Immunology, Benaroya Research Institute


We have developed a novel IL-2 ‘mutein’ that is highly selective for Foxp3+ regulatory T cells, potently expands regulatory T cells in vivo, arrests ongoing autoimmunity and induces durable disease protection models of autoimmunity. This is a highly promising therapeutic approach to treatment of a host of human autoimmune diseases.

Host: Booki Min, Professor, Dept. of Micrbiology-Immunology
