Fuelling the fight: how metabolism shapes immune responses

Cristhiane Favero de Aguiar (She/her) (MSCA Postdoctoral fellow, Trinity College Dublin)
Just as we need fuel to run, our immune cells also need energy and nutrients to do their job effectively. By studying how these immune cells get their energy and how they use it, we can learn more about how diseases develop and how we might be able to better treat them.

Stephen Maher (He/him) (Associate Professor, Trinity College Dublin & St James's Hospital)
We will explore the history of cancer from its first description by the ancient Egyptians, through to medieval treatments and key advancements over the past 150 years, right up to modern day personalised medicine and our quest for the cure.
