1st Viennese T-cell Colloquium


On Friday, September 23, 2016, Prof. Andreas Beilhack was invited to participate at the 1st Viennese T-cell Colloquium in Vienna, Austria. He presented the lab’s recent progress in stimulating regulatory T cells in vivo for the treatment of inflammatory conditions, such as acute graft-versus-host disease. Before the lectures took place in the fabulous historic Jugendstil lecture hall at Vienna’s General Hospital the group enjoyed a guide tour through the fantastic anatomic collections and wax models dating back to 1784 at the Josephinum. The topics of the exquisite conference ranged from T cell development and thymic selection to T cell mediated autoimmune diseases, transplantation and cancer immunotherapy (Picture: Library of the Josephinum, Medical University of Vienna, Austria).
