Understanding immunity for functional cure of hepatitis B
Hosted by Xavier Forns
January’s seminar will focus on the immunotherapeutic insights into hepatitis B.
Visits will always have the same agenda: during the morning, the Expert will be able to meet in private with scientists from research centres geographically close to the Institution that welcomes him (please book your time slot at the “meet the speaker” tab), in the afternoon we will have the seminar itself that will be live broadcasted to the Institute that does not host the speaker.
Please note that activities are not restricted to the personnel from the organizing institutions. In this page you will find detailed information about the invited Speakers and scientific topics that will be covered during this academic year.
Mala Maini is Professor of Viral Immunology in the Division of Infection and Immunity at University College London.
Prof Maini obtained the specialist medical accreditation in 1995 and the PhD, funded by an MRC Clinical Training Fellowship, in the lab of Peter Beverley (ICRF, London) in 1998. A unifying theme in her research training has been the T cell immunology of persistent viral infections in humans (from EBV to HIV and then HBV). Prof Maini started her own group in this field in 2002. After an MRC/Academy of Medical Sciences Clinical Scientist Fellowship, she moved into a tenured position at UCL and a personal chair in 2009.
