Professor Mark M. Davis from Stanford University Visited IBP and Delivered a BEI Shizhang Lecture

Author: Update time: 2017-11-15

On 13th November, 2017, Professor Mark M. Davis from Stanford University was invited by Professor Pengyuan Yang of IBP to give a presentation titled " Tools for T cells: New ways to understand T cell responses in infectious diseases, autoimmunity and cancer”. Many researchers and graduate students actively participated in this academic report.

Dr. Davis is the Director of the Stanford Institute for Immunology, Transplantation and Infection (ITI), a Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator. And was elected to membership in National Academy of Sciences, U.S.A. in 1993.

Dr. Davis is well known for identifying many of the T-cell receptor genes, which are responsible for the ability of these cells to recognize a diverse repertoire of antigens. His laboratory always pioneered novel studies of the biochemistry, genetics and cell biology of these molecules and T lymphocytes generally, which play a key role in orchestrating immune responses. His current research focuses on how the immune system functions both normally and under the stress of a specific disease, whether from an external source as in the case of infectious diseases or from internal threats such as autoimmunity or cancer. Dr. Davis developed many new technologies, such as Tetramer system, single cell imaging, and TCR sequencing. These tools provide a very powerful help in the study of T-cell responses to different tumors, autoimmune and infections.

We have benefited a lot from the lecture, after that a number of researchers and students asked questions and conducted in-depth discussions with Professor Mark M. Davis. Then Professor Mark M. Davis and Professors of Key Laboratory of Infection and Immunity talked actively at the luncheon.
