Role of the Unfolded Protein Response in Liver Cancer Immunogenicity

Hosted by Ana Clemente (IiSGM, Madrid) 

Josepmaria Argemi holds a degree in Medicine from the University of Barcelona (2003) and a specialist in Internal Medicine from the University Campus Bio-Medico di Roma, Italy (2010).
He completed his doctoral thesis at the Center for Applied Medical Research (CIMA) of the University of Navarra (2015) focusing on the role of the stress response of misfolded proteins in post-hepatectomy hepatic regeneration (1). In 2016 he joined the Hepatology Unit of the Clinica Universidad de Navarra and from 2017 to 2020 he did a post-doctoral stay at the University of Pittsburgh, where he worked on the role of HNF4A in liver failure in patients with acute alcoholic hepatitis (2). Since 2020 he has been a Principal Investigator at CIMA, where he investigates the role of reticulum stress in the immunogenicity of hepatocarcinoma, a task that he combines with his clinical activity in the Hepatology Unit of the CUN both in external consultations and in clinical trials and with teaching in the Degree in Medicine of the University of Navarra. It has active funding from the State Health Agency, the Carlos III Health Institute and the Echebano Foundation. He is a member of the scientific committee of the CUN Cancer Center and of the strategic committee of the CIMA Genomic Unit. (1) DOI: 10.1053/j.gastro.2016.12.040 (2) DOI: 10.1038/s41467-019-11004-3
