|Dr Emily Edwards will|
host the symposium
October 11th sees the second annual symposium of the Jeffrey Modell Foundation (JMF) Centre for Primary Immunodeficiencies Melbourne, hosted by our own Dr Emily Edwards. The event theme is ‘Bridging Research and Care for Patients’, and it promises to provide stimulating content relevant to researchers in immunology, infectious diseases, and gastrointestinal medicine among others.
The Department of Immunology and Pathology’s A/Prof Menno van Zelm serves as the Director of the JMF Centre Melbourne, and Dr Emily Edwards is acting as conference host. Emily’s work focuses on investigating the impact of genetic mutations on B cell differentiation and function in patients with primary immunodeficiencies. She’ll be presenting on flow cytometry approaches to diagnosis and identification of prognostic markers for the development of non-infectious complications in primary immune deficiencies.
