Foreseen seminars (dates to be confirmed)

10:00-11:00 AM EDT

16:00-17:00 CEST

Speaker:

Dr Jesse Bloom, Evolutionary and Computational Biologist, Public Health Sciences Division, Fred Hutch, Washington, USA:

 

Dr. Jesse Bloom studies evolution using viruses and viral proteins as models. Specifically focusing on the fast-evolving influenza virus, Bloom aims to understand how mutations in viral genes shape the pathogen’s ability to infect and spread. He uses computational biology and real-world data to build evolutionary models and examine different scales of viral evolution, from evolution within a single host to evolution on a global scale. In doing so, Bloom addresses both fundamental and translational questions, including those with relevance to developing more effective seasonal flu vaccines.

Recording on our YouTube Channel is available here.

Speaker:

Dr Florian Krammer, Professor of Vaccinology at the Department of Microbiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, USA

The Krammer laboratory focuses on understanding broadly-reactive immune responses against the surface glycoproteins of RNA viruses such as influenza with the goal to develop better vaccines and novel therapeutics.

Dr David Putrino, Physical therapist, Director of Rehabilitation Innovation for the Mt Sinai Health System, New York, USA

David is a physical therapist with a PhD in Neuroscience. He is currently the Director of Rehabilitation Innovation for the Mount Sinai Health System, and an Associate Professor of Rehabilitation and Human Performance at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He develops innovative rehabilitation solutions for adults and children in need of better healthcare accessibility, and in 2019, he was named "Global Australian of the Year" for his contributions to healthcare. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, David has been recognized globally as a leading expert in the assessment, treatment and underlying physiology of Long COVID. His team has managed the care of almost 2000 people with Long COVID and published multiple peer-reviewed scientific papers on the topic.

23 June 2022 - "COVID-19 and Maternal Immunity"

10:00-11:00 AM EDT

16:00-17:00 CEST

Speaker:

Dr Helena Soares, Human immunologist, Chronic Diseases Research Centre (CEDOC), Lisbon, Portugal:

 

Dr. Helena Soares lab is interested in determining how immune receptor signaling is able to convey distinct immune responses that protect us against disparate aggressions (fungus, virus, bacteria, cancer, etc.). Current research focuses also on sex bias in immune responses and infectious diseases.
