UCL Faculty of Medical Sciences presents its April Public Lecture which is dedicated to World Liver Day with a talk about immune cells in the liver. 

Location: Online

You could say we are all continually influenced by our location, environmental factors, the people we encounter, and even how hungry we are at a given moment. Immune cells are no different. In this upcoming FMS Public Lecture I will discuss how the identity and function of immune cells is influenced by such factors. We will focus on a subset of immune cells in the human liver known as ‘resident T cells’ that are highly specialised, trained assassins, that help to control infections and tumour cell growth.

This virtual lecture will be followed by a Q&A with our speaker Dr Laura Pallett.
