virtual meeting via Zoom

The next DDc Lunch Retreat is coming up on April 22 from noon to 1:00 p.m. We are looking forward to an interesting retreat with key speaker Dr. Lydia Kalafati (TUD/HZDR/IPF, head of the DRESDEN-concept Research Group “Inflammation and Myelopoiesis”) and Prof. Dr. Triantafyllos Chavakis, who will moderate our Lunch Retreat.

Inflammation-mediated Regulation of Myelopoiesis

The bone marrow reacts to inflammation. Specifically, acute or chronic inflammation promotes increased production of myeloid cells from bone marrow progenitors, a process termed as emergency myelopoiesis.
The ability of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells to sense and adapt to such pro-inflammatory cues underlies also the induction of trained immunity. Trained immunity is characterized by sustained epigenetic rewiring of bone marrow progenitors leading to production of “trained” myeloid cells with enhanced immune preparedness to respond to future stimuli. This hyper-responsiveness of trained myeloid cells can result to either beneficial or detrimental outcomes depending on the disease context. Our lab is interested in defining how inflammatory modulation of myelopoiesis and processes pertinent to trained immunity may affect inflammatory disease and cancer, including tumor immunotherapy.

The meeting will be held in English as a videoconference (Zoom). All DDc-scientists are cordially invited to join.
