MSHR seminar series 


Dr Su Crail presents ‘The role of Ena/VASP family proteins in T cell activation’ on Monday 21 May from 12pm to 1pm.

Ena/VASP proteins were first identified in platelets in the late 1980s and are associated with actin polymerisation and rearrangement of the actin cytoskeleton. Dr Crail investigated a potential role of the actin cytoskeleton in T cell activation via the use of a dominant-negative form of VASP. The actin cytoskeleton may be a potential target for production of T cell anergy and a novel target for immunosuppression therapy.

Dr Su Crail is a Nephrologist with the Royal Darwin Hospital.

This seminar takes place in the Menzies Seminar Room, John Mathews Building, Royal Darwin Hospital Campus.
