Paul Kubes: Imaging the Immune Response in Injury and Infection

15. 12. 2016, University Campus Bohunice

About the lecture

 

Dr. Paul Kubes

University of Calgary, Canada

Our lab is committed to understanding complex immune responses in the context of human clinical disease. Our primary focus is to directly visualize the roles of immune cells during Inflammation, Infection and tissue Injury. Our lab is leading the way in directly imaging the immune system using cutting edge technology, including spinning-disk confocal and multi-photon microscopy. By imaging complex cellular behaviors in real time, both in vitro and in vivo, we can now begin to understand how immune cells, such as neutrophils, monocytes, NKT cells and Kupffer cells function under physiological and pathological disease states.
