As part of the BCI’s Seminar Series, we are pleased to welcome Dr Richard Beatson from King’s College London to present at the BCI on Thursday 7th November. For more information about Richard Beaton’s work please see below.
The seminar is entitled: “Sialic acids as innate immune activators; balancing self and non-self to repair or react”
The seminar will be held in the Lister and Young Seminar Room, 12.30pm – 13.30pm.
Richard is a Research Fellow at King’s College London. Trained in medicine (Glasgow), immunology (UCL) and glycobiology (KCL) Richard has been studying the cross-talk between cancer-associated O-linked glycans and host immune cells for over 10 years. He is currently investigating the ability of MUC1 carrying sialylated O-linked glycans to drive monocytes to differentiate into ‘wound healing’ macrophages, and assessing the prevalence of these processes in breast cancers. Richard has additional interests in gamma delta T cells (for adoptive cancer therapy), chronic inflammatory disease (inflammatory arthritis and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis) and plant derived immunological tools.
