Title: Unlocking the biochemical “secrets” that control T cell-mediated antibody response

Speaker:  Dr Zhian (Anthony) Chen, UQ Frazer Institute

Bio: Dr Zhian (Anthony) Chen is an early career immunologist at the UQ Frazer Institute. He was awarded PhD in late 2017 from Monash University. He completed postdoctoral training under the mentorship of Prof Di Yu (UQ) and was recently appointed as a senior research fellow under the UQ Health Research Accelerator program. His research primarily focuses on elucidating the molecular mechanisms that govern T-cell-mediated immunity, with a specific emphasis on the role of follicular helper T (TFH) cells in antibody response and the significance of TFH signature cytokines in supporting germinal centre response while preventing T cell exhaustion. Dr Chen's work employs multi-disciplinary techniques has led to several high-impact discoveries in the field.

About School research seminars

Seminars cover all aspects of chemistry and molecular biosciences and are delivered by visiting national and international academics. PhD completion seminars are also incorporated into the program.

Seminars are usually held in person and via zoom. All are welcome to attend.
