Additional Information

 Featuring: Arlene Sharpe, MD, PhD George Fabyan Professor Department of Comparative Pathology Co-Director, Harvard Institute for Translational Immunology, Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Arlene Sharpe's current research interest is to study functions of T cell costimulatory pathways and their immunoregulatory roles in controlling the balance between T cell activation and tolerance.

Costimulation is of therapeutic interest because manipulation of T cell costimulatory pathways may provide a means either to enhance immune responses (to promote anti-microbial or tumor immunity) or terminate immune responses (to control autoimmune diseases or achieve tolerance for tissue transplantation).

Co-sponsored by the David Geffen School of Medicine Initiative in Immunity, Inflammation, Infection, and Transplantation (I3T), the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Center for AIDS Research.
