Senior Lecturer in Clinical Immunology Dr Nadia Terrazzini recently presented her current work at the European Congress of Immunology in Vienna.
Dr Terrazzini said of her work “This work is the result of a successful ongoing collaboration with BSMS. We show how the cytokine IL7 is a potent activator of antigen-specific memory responses of T cells primed in vivo by infections. Treatment of T cells with this cytokine allows the identification of memory cells in conditions where their frequency is very low and may become beneficial for earlier clinical diagnostic and prognostic purposes.”
