“An excellent adventure in Skin Immunbiology Research”

March 31, 2015 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

We invited Prof. R. Modlin* (UCLA, USA), a leading dermatologists/physicians who successfully established a career in translational medicine and investigative dermatology to come to Cologne on March 31, 2015, to serve as role model for our young clinician scientists and as an inspirational source for how to open new doors to understand the molecular basis of skin diseases that can lead to new insights and developments in clinical dermatology.

*Robert L. Modlin, M.D. is Chief, Division of Dermatology, and Professor of Dermatology, Department of Medicine and Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Molecular Genetics, at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. He received his medical degree form New York University and residency training from Los Angeles County/ University of Southern California Medical Center.

Dr. Modlin’s lab is interested in the immunology of microbial infection. Infectious disease poses a major health problem worldwide. Essential to control of these diseases is the elucidation of immune mechanisms that result in resistance versus susceptibility to infection. The laboratory’s focus is the identification of novel mechanisms by which the innate and adaptive immune system combat microbial pathogens. Using leprosy as a model, Dr. Modlin’s lab has made important contributions to our understanding of immunology including the role of mammalian Toll-like receptors and CD1-restricted T cells in host defense, including the cytokines pattens and antimicrobial pathways. These studies include 3 papers published in Nature and 10 in Science. It is hoped that the insights obtained from these studies will lead to better treatments and prevention of infectious diseases in humans.
