Event Detail


  • GIAN course in Immunology

    Date:  Saturday, Feb 17-Mar 02, 2018

    Venue: 

    “Molecular Dissection of Host-Pathogen Interaction: The Basic and Translational Immunology”.

    This course will be conducted by Prof. Akinori Takaoka, M.D., PhD (Division of Signaling in Cancer and Immunology, Institute for Genetic Medicine, Hokkaido University, Japan) and Dr. Himanshu Kumar (Laboratory of Immunology and Infectious Disease Biology, Department of Biological Sciences, IISER Bhopal).

    Prof. Takaoka focus of research is innate immunity, in particular, characterization of molecular mechanisms underlying cellular response to microbial infection and cancer, with the identification of possible therapeutic targets.

    Dr. Kumar, research interest lies in the investigation of influence of extrinsic and intrinsic factors during microbial infection at first level of host defense system, particularly, post-transcriptional regulations of innate immune signaling pathways for the development of next generation RNA-based therapeutics.
