Seminar in Translational Oncology – Prof. Federico Garrido

Mainz, September 2017 – On September 14, Prof. Federico Garrido from the University of Granada Medical School will be visiting Mainz in the context of our Seminars in Translational Oncology series (SITO). You are cordially invited to his talk at 5 pm c.t. in building 708 of the University Medicine Mainz.

The title of his talk is:

The Escape of Cancer from T Cell Mediated Immune Surveillance: HLA Class-I Loss and Tumor Tissue Architecture

The presentation is open to everybody.

Prof. Federico Garrido is Professor of Immunology at the University of Granada Medical School and head of the Dept. of Clinical Analysis & Immunology at the Hospital Universitario Virgen de las Nieves, Granada, Spain. After obtaining his MD and PhD degrees from the University of Granada in 1974, Prof. Garrido went on as a postdoctoral fellow at the laboratory of Dr. Hilliard Festenstein at the London Hospital Medical College in London, investigating the immunogenetics of the MHC (H-2) system by typing mouse tumour cells for H-2 expression. After returning to Granada in 1981 he continued his research on HLA typing of human tumour tissues. Prof. Garridos research focuses on the expression of HLA antigens in tumours and the role that these molecules play on tumour evasion from the immune system.
