Naked Immunology webinar april 2024 Prof Marcus Maurer

Webinar #7 – Mast Cells: Can’t live with them, can’t live without them?

April 8, 2024 – Prof. Marcus Maurer

Explore the complex world of mast cells (MCs), pivotal in both defending against environmental threats and driving chronic inflammatory diseases, impacting countless individuals worldwide. Prof. Marcus Maurer delves into the latest research on MCs, particularly in skin health, their dual roles in conditions like urticaria and mastocytosis, and the innovative methodologies for their study. Uncover cutting-edge therapeutic approaches being developed to mitigate MC-driven inflammation, including mediator inhibition and cell depletion, promising a new horizon in treatment strategies.

Webinar #6 - Development of Vaccines for the treatment of Allergic Diseases - Dr. Reber

Webinar #6 – Development of Vaccines for the treatment of Allergic Diseases

October 12, 2023 – Dr. Laurent Reber

Discover the rising challenge of allergies, now affecting over 220 million globally, with a focus on allergic asthma and food allergies. Dr. Reber unveils groundbreaking research from a collaboration with NEOVACS, INSERM, and Institut Pasteur, introducing kinoid vaccines. These innovative vaccines target key allergic pathways, offering a cost-effective, long-lasting solution against severe allergic reactions. Dive deep into the science and potential of this promising treatment.

Naked Immunology webinar june 2023 Dr Cezmi Akdis

Webinar #5 – Epithelial barrier theory

June 30, 2023 – Dr. Cezmi Akdis

Exposure to everyday toxins and chemicals can disrupt epithelial barriers, leading to chronic inflammation, as revealed in extensive research utilizing innovative methods mimicking human tissues. This research also highlights the discovery of over 20 “rescue molecules” that have potential to mitigate these damaging effects, offering a new avenue towards healing damaged epithelial barriers and disease prevention.

Webinar Science behind epidermal & dermal vaccination

Webinar #4 – Science behind epidermal & dermal vaccination

March 28, 2023 – Dr. Béhazine Combadière

The field of vaccination is currently at a turning point with new ideas and innovations, relying on basic research to understand and translate human immunity. The development of alternative routes of immunization for increased efficacy, such as intradermal and transcutaneous techniques, is becoming more popular due to advances in knowledge about the plasticity of antigen-presenting cells and the recruitment of inflammatory cells.

Webinar The Neuroimmune Regulation of Itch

Webinar #3 – The Neuroimmune Regulation of Itch

September 30, 2022 – Dr. Brian Kim

The ability to sense the environment is essential to survival and is the primary purpose of the somatosensory nervous system. However, despite its presence in many conditions, the sensation of itch, and its importance in medicine, have been historically overlooked and under-appreciated.

This edition of Naked Immunology highlights how fundamental discoveries and the ensuing success of new therapeutics, have placed itch biology at the forefront of a translational revolution in the field of somatosensation and beyond.

Webinar Profiling Myeloid Cell Heterogeneity at Single Cell Level

Webinar #2 – Profiling Myeloid Cell Heterogeneity at Single Cell Level

May 10, 2022 – Dr. Florent Ginhoux

Myeloid cells are key players when it comes to immunity! Understanding their differentiation pathway and how their activation status can modulate the development of pathological features in a broad range of inflammatory diseases is crucial to finding new therapeutic targets for drug development.
Lately, next generation transcriptomic analyses, such as single cell RNAseq coupled with bioinformatics, have allowed scientists to understand how myeloid cells (e.g., dendritic cells) can be primed to modulate T cell activation in atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. These data can also be used to recreate the full immune cell landscape in the skin.

Webinar MRGPRX2+ Mast Cells : From Biology to Clinical Perspective in Skin Immunology

Webinar #1 – MRGPRX2+ Mast Cells : From Biology to Clinical Perspective in Skin Immunology

March 9, 2022 – Dr. Nicolas Gaudenzio

Mast cells are tissue-resident immune cells best known for their detrimental role in allergic disorders via their expression of the high affinity IgE receptor (FceRI). Recently, the discovery of MRGPRX2 as a key receptor that regulates many aspects of mast cell biology, has opened new avenues for the field. In this webinar we discuss how skin mast cells integrate different stimuli to regulate their activation program and the consequences on frequent dermatoses. We also emphasize the importance of bidirectional communications between sensory neurons and MRGPRX2+ mast cells in the development of type 2 immunity-driven skin inflammation.
