AUDITORIUM, QIMR CENTRAL, Queensland Institute of Medical Research

Whitehead Institute Member Professor Hidde Ploegh is a leading researcher in immune system behavior.

In this seminar Professor Ploegh will talk about his current work studying how T cells (the white blood cells responsible for finding and destroying infectious disease) respond to cancerous tumors and also other research where Professor Ploegh has developed a method of improving the performance of protein-based therapy drugs.
