Lecture - Prof Douglas Green - Born different: metabolic maintenance of asymmetric cell death in T cells

29/09/2016 13:00 to 29/09/2016 16:30 (Europe/Luxembourg)

Esch/Alzette, Luxembourg


Prof Douglas GREEN is Chair of the Department of Immunology
at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, USA.


Prof. Douglas Green was the Director of the Division of Cellular Immunology at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (San Diego, USA) before he became the Chair of the Department of Immunology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, USA. Prof. Green was the first to
describe activation-induced apoptosis in T lymphocytes and was involved in many signature discoveries in the cell death field: the role of the oncogene Myc in driving apoptosis, the ability of BCL-2 proteins to block cell death, the functions of death receptors in cell death and the immune system, and the mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis. So far, he has published more than 500 scientific articles and is one of the world’s most cited molecular biologist. Currently his research focuses on mitochondrial
physiology in cell survival and cell death, autophagy and metabolic reprogramming/regulation of T lymphocytes.
