海外演者プロフィール

Derya Unutmaz, M.D.

Derya Unutmaz is Associate Professor at the New York University School of Medicine. His extensive list of scientific publications includes several publications in such renowned journals as Science and Nature. He is also the author of numerous book chapters and reviews. Through his scientific career which included research positions at the  Immunobiology Research Institute, Novartis, Siena, Italy and the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, TN.  Dr. Unutmaz is also standing member of NIH grant study section  on HIV/AIDS and is one of the section editors of PLoS ONE since its first issue. His research is focused on understanding the differentiation and function of human T cell subsets, and their perturbation during variety of diseases including HIV infection.
At the Frontiers in Immunology Conference Dr. Unutmaz present his ongoing research onunderstanding functional differentiation and compartmentalization of both human Th17 and regulatory T cells (Treg) subsets, and application of flow cytometry for detailed profiling of these cells during health and disease states.

Gabrielle Belz, PhD.

Gabrielle T. Belz is the laboratory head in the Division of Immunology at the renowned Walter and ELIZA Hall Institute (WEHI) of Medical Research in Melbourne, Australia.
After her postdoctoral work in the United States in the Immunology Department of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Memphis, Dr. Belz returned to Australia and was a recipient of several awards and fellowships including the Wellcome Trust and HHMI Fellowship together with the Burnet Award and the Gottschalk Medal for her contribution to our understanding of how dendritic cells drive the developmental program of T cells to generate protective immunity to pathogens. Her long list of scientific publications in peer-reviewed journals encompasses alone in 2013 eight publications in journals like Nature Immunology, Blood, PNAS and Journal of Immunology.
At the Frontiers of Immunology Conference Dr. Belz presents her latest data about the highly regulated interplay between the gut environment and innate lymphocytes in controlling gastrointestinal homeostasis.

James Harris, PhD.

James Harris is an expert in autophagy and his work is focusing on the role of autophagy in infection and inflammation, including work on the role of cytokines in the regulation of autophagy and the role of autophagy in regulating cytokine release by innate immune cells. During his scientific career he worked at the University of Oxford, the University of New Mexico, USA and the last years he worked at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland. Since January 2013 he continues his work on autophagy at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.
At the Frontiers of Immunology Conference Dr. Harris provides evidence that autophagy may act as an important mechanism for the control of inflammation and, as such, may represent a useful target in the development of anti-inflammatory therapies.
