Live Webinar: Respiratory immunity and COVID-19

Monday 8th June 2020

Donna Farber will discuss the development of lung-localized immune responses and the role of tissue resident memory T cells in protective immunity to respiratory viruses, in mouse models of influenza infection and in human lungs,  including recent findings on the impact of age on human lung immunity.  These concepts will be discussed in the context of respiratory immunity in SARS-CoV2 infection and our studies identifying potential immune correlates of disease severity in COVID-19.

Donna Farber is the George H Humphreys, II Professor of Surgical Sciences (in Surgery) and Professor of Microbiology and Immunology at Columbia University. The focus of Dr. Farber’s research is on adaptive immunity, particularly to virus infections and how T cell differentiate and generate long-term immunological memory in diverse tissues sites.

The webinar will be moderated by Henry Mwandumba,  Deputy Director of the Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome research programme. He works on the tuberculosis phagosome in the University of Malawi College of Medicine, and serves as President of the Federation of African Immunological Societies.
