VitDAL postdoc Dr Iris Mair was presenting the lab’s latest research findings at the World Congress of Inflammation in London this week. Iris was invited to present her abstract as an oral presentation where she discussed some of the lab’s recent findings of how 1,25(OH)2D3 alters negative co-stimulatory molecules on dendritic cells. Iris gave an overview of the approaches she has developed to down regulate and over express molecules on dendritic cells using lentivirus constructs. This has allowed us the lab to undertake precise, mechanistic studies to define how vitamin D metabolites modulate dendritic cell phenotype and function.
