Respiratory Immune Responses to Microbiota & Pathogens

Presented By:
Benjamin Marsland, PhD, Monash University
Anna Smed Sorensen, PhD, Karolinska Institutet

Register


BIO:

Ben Marsland completed his PhD in Immunology at Otago University and the Malaghan Institute of Medical Research, Wellington, New Zealand. He then spent 14 years in Switzerland, first at the ETH Zürich and then as a Cloetta Medical Research Fellow at the University Hospital of Lausanne (CHUV). During that period, he received the ETH Latsis Prize, the Leenaards Prize and the ERS COPD Research Award. Since 2018, Ben is a veski innovation fellow, NHMRC Senior Research Fellow and Professor in the Department of Immunology and Pathology, within the Central Clinical School at Monash University. He also maintains a visiting professorship at the University of Lausanne and CHUV. The focus of Ben’s lab revolves around the microbiome in the gut, lung and skin and how it influences asthma, respiratory viral infections and lung fibrosis.

BIO:

Anna Smed-Sörensen is an associate professor (docent) of immunology, and research group leader at the Division of Immunology and Allergy, Department of Medicine, Solna, Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden. After completing her PhD at Karolinska Institutet in 2004, she did postdoctoral training with Prof. Ira Mellman at Yale University School of Medicine and at Genentech, Inc., in California. Dr. Smed-Sörensen returned to Karolinska Institutet in 2010 as an assistant professor. Her lab does translational immunology focused on infection and inflammation of the respiratory system in humans. In particular her lab studies immune cells, especially dendritic cells and monocytes, and immune responses in the upper and lower airways of patients with viral infection (influenza virus, SARS-CoV-2 or hantavirus) or pulmonary sarcoidosis to understand how early, innate immune responses in the local tissue dictate disease severity and outcome.
