As part of the adaptive immune system, T cells play a pivotal role in cell-mediated immunity. With their link to numerous diseases, T cells have proven to be a valuable research field.
Expanding on what is known about their differentiation and action helps generate strategies for therapeutic interventions. Research fields that focus on T cells challenge researchers worldwide who are studying the human immune system and animal models. Sophisticated tools and methods are needed to dissect T-cell functions.
Miltenyi Biotec is sponsoring a new, free educational webinar, “Spotlights on T cells: new developments for translational and basic T cell research,” which will discuss how T cells can be studied using techniques for isolation of T cells or their subsets out of cell samples, in vitro differentiation, stimulation, and culture methods, and highly sensitive flow cytometry assays. The speaker is Anne Richter, Ph.D., R&D Reagent Department, head of the T cell Immunology and Flow Analysis group at Miltenyi Biotec GmbH.
In the webinar, Dr. Richter will discuss why the company’s MACS® Technology makes a difference for cell separation and also, when looking at cell culturing and cell analysis with optimized and harmonized T cell tools. Attendees can sharpen their understanding of T helper cell differentiation and phenotypical and functional assays of rare antigen-specific T cells using highly sensitive flow analysis.
Dr. Richter obtained a Ph.D. working on T helper cell polarization at the German Rheumatism Research Center in Berlin. She then joined Miltenyi Biotec, Germany, as project leader in the R&D Reagent Department, developing methods and reagents for cell separation, culturing, and analysis. Her current focus is on the development of innovative tools for research applications, and the group is also working in the field of adaptive T-cell therapy.
The free webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on June 23, 2016, at 11 am Pacific Time/2 pm Eastern Time.
