Speaker: Professor Tom Salt

ICM Research Seminar

Speaker 1: Ashleigh McConnell

Speaker 2: Gabriel Cantanhede 

1: CXCR4, CXCR7 and CXCL12 Expression and Cell Signalling in Cutaneous Melanoma

Ashleigh will talk about he prognostic signficance and impact of the CXCR4-CXCR7-CXCL12 axis in primary cutaneous melanoma 


2: The role of class II Human Leukocyte Antigens in Chronic Kidney Transplant Rejection


Gabriel will talk about Antibody-mediated rejection is one of the major causes of chronic rejection. This is mediated by endothelial cell activation, a process of endothelium microvascular inflammation and leukocyte recruitment. Evidence pointing to the relevance of HLA class II antibody in graft rejection is abundant, but the role of antibody-endothelium interaction in the absence of complement has not been fully understood. This project seeks to identify signalling cascades activated by HLA class II antibodies and mechanisms mediating endothelial cell – leukocyte interaction
