Dr Su Heinzel, from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, will be presenting “T-cell modelling: Numbers, Colours and Destiny”. Dr Eric Smith (Postdoctoral Fellow, Discipline of Surgery, Basil Hetzel Institute TQEH and the University of Adelaide) will chair the seminar.
Susanne completed her PhD at the University in Tuebingen in the field of Tumour Immunology investigating the immune responses of human CD4 T cells to novel tumour antigens. Her postdoc took her to Adelaide where she continued to work on tumour immunology at the RAH, before moving to Vaxine, a small biotech company. There she worked as clinical trial manager and senior research scientist on the development of vaccine adjuvants. Following her passion for basic research she moved to WEHI in Melbourne in 2010. Her research there has focussed on understanding the rules that govern the activation, survival and expansion of T and B lymphocytes.
