Carlos Rivera Places third at The Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science 10th Annual Frontiers of Translational Science Research DayPublished: Friday, May 10, 2019
Congratulations to Carlos Rivera, a student in the Molecular Immunology and Microbiology discipline of the Integrated Biomedical Sciences program, for placing third at The Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science 10th Annual Frontiers of Translational Science Research Day,
Carlos’ research focuses on the induction of sustained and anamnestic antibody responses and epigenetic regulation of the generation of memory B cells independently of T cells. He is working in the lab of Dr. Paolo Casali whose main focus of research is on mechanisms of immunoglobulin locus activation and targeting.
The title of Carlos Rivera’s poster presentation was “Induction of T cell-independent hypermutated and protective IgG and IgA antibody responses by engagement of TLR4 or TLR5 and BCR.”
Each winner received a certificate and a $500 travel award! Congratulations to Carlos!
