How T cell activation begins


Scientific sessions, PRBB CRG Conferences

Oreste Acuto

T Cell Signalling Group, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford. Oxford, UK



Oreste Acuto, from the Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, University of Oxford, UK, is interested in understanding how T cells, central actors of adaptive immune responses, become activated when they encounter foreign substances. He studies the nature of signals received by T cells during activation and how these signals are chemically decoded to drive complex decisions. He has been invited by Jose Aramburu (UPF).
