Wednesday the 19th February: Dr Matt Hepworth
University of Manchester
“Environmental and metabolic regulation of immune responses at mucosal barrier sites”
Please join us for Matt’s talk, on Wednesday the 19th of February, AV Hill 1.006, 11:00.
Matt received his PhD from the University of Manchester working on type 2 immune responses to helminth infections. After a postdoc in Berlin, he then worked at UPenn and Cornell NYC where he performed a series of studies dissecting novel mechanisms through which innate lymphoid cells (ILC) regulate host-commensal microbiota mutualism and determining how dysregulation of these pathways results in Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD). Since returning to Manchester as a Sir Henry Wellcome fellow in 2016 Matt’s lab has begun to dissect how signals from the microbiota and diet cross regulate immune responses and fuel cellular metabolism required for tissue homeostasis and protective immunity.
