On Wednesday, August 24, 2022, 4.30 pm, ISAS will be hosting a colloquium with Prof Dr Ronen Alon, followed by a discussion. Alon holds the Linda Jacobs Professorial Chair in Immune and Stem Cell Research at the Department of Immunology and Regenerative Biology (Weizmann Institute of Science) in Rehovot, Israel. Among other things, the immunologist conducts research on leukocyte migration and cancer metastasis. His lecture on “LFA-1-ICAM-1 Signals for Leukocyte Differentiation & Effector Functions: Findings & Puzzles“ will address the role of the protein ICAM-1 in its function as an intercellular adhesion molecule and its protein receptor LFA-1 in the immune response. Alon is also going to present the findings of his in vivo experiments that demonstrate how the interaction of LFA-1 and ICAM-1 affects, for example, the growth of breast cancer cells.

ISAS will broadcast the colloquium via Webex. Participation is possible via the following login data:
