CID Weekly Seminar Series: Invited Speaker -Dr Lisa Lindqvist, 9 May

Tuesday 9 May, 2:00 - 1:00pm, Seminar Room 1, TRF Building

Dr Lisa Lindqvist
Senior Postdoctoral Fellow
Walter and Eliza Hal Institute
Division of Cell Signalling and Cell Death

Sophisticated regulation of inflammatory signalling during cell death is critical to ensure a proper immune response. For instance during development, or when maintaining homeostatic cell number, an inflammatory response would be detrimental, while secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines are appropriate during infection. This seminar will focus on how 3 cell suicide pathways (pyroptosis, necroptosis, and mitochondrial-mediated apoptosis) differentially regulate pro-inflammatory cytokine secretion, with a special focus on the role autophagy plays in this process.

Lisa Lindqvist received her PhD in 2011 from McGill University in Canada characterising anti-neoplastic protein synthesis inhibitors. As Senior Postdoctoral Fellow position in the Cell Signalling and Cell Division at the Walter & Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, her current research program is dedicated to the understanding of the interplay between cell suicide, autophagy, and inflammation pathways. Throughout her career, Dr Lindqvist has been supported by multiple prestigious federal scholarships and fellowships from NSERC, CIHR and the NHMRC. In 2011, she was named the CIHR Bisby Fellow, a distinction awarded to the highest ranked proposal in the annual National Canadian Institutes of Health Research Post-PhD fellowship competition.

Please contact to schedule a meeting with Lisa after the seminar.
A light lunch is served prior to the seminar at 11:45am in the seminar room foyer, level 2, TRF Building.
