Sox2, more than a transcription factor

Date: Thursday 30thApril 2015

Dear Colleagues,

The Centre for Systems Medicine is pleased to announce another speaker of our seminar series, Dr Pengyan Xia.

Dr Xia’s research is focussed on
studying development and differentiation of the haematopoietic system, in
particular in self-renewal of haematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) and anti-microbe
activity of white blood cells that derived from HSCs. Specifically, his
research is focussed on signalling platforms that regulate the
self-renewal of HSCs (Xia et al, J Exp Med 2014) as well as extracellular
DNA triggered innate immunity in neutrophils (Xia et al, Nat Immunol 2015).

You are all very welcome to attend, please register at:csm@rcsi.ie
