Archived Bedside to Bench & Back Lecture Series

FOCIS Center of Excellence

Human immunology is a mysterious land where the intricacy of the polymorphic human being overlaps the complexity of the adaptive and innate immune-response.

The Bedside to Bench & Back (BB&B) Lecture Series is an educational activity supported jointly by the Federation of Clinical Immunology Societies (FOCIS) and the National Institutes of Health Center of Human Immunology (CHI). Its scope is to serve as a bridge between intra-mural and local extra-mural immunology community, promoting cultural exchange and collaboration between scientist and clinicians who share common interest for translational studies aimed to untie the intricacy of human immune-system.

Through thought-provoking lectures, BB&B hopes to deliver Innovative science and to trigger novel exciting investigation.

The BB&B Lecture Series take advantage of the outstanding investigators present in the intra-mural and extra-mural scientific communities and are highly advertised. The organizers are happy to consider any suggestions/recommendation for topics from any member of the NIH community, Academia, FDA or Commercial Sector. The lectures should be mainly focused on the study of human subjects.

Junior faculty, young investigator and fellow are strongly encouraged to submit their lecture proposal. They will have the opportunity to discuss in detail their findings and their projects with leader investigators in the field. Dr. Francesco Marincola (CHI Associate Director, Director Clinical Center FOCIS Center of Excellence) and Dr. Robert Nussenblatt (CHI Associate Director, FOCIS President Elect) are usually present at the lecture.

Every year, BB&B Committee will select a BB&B speaker to receive the BB&B LS Award, consisting in a Travel Award to attend the FOCIS Advanced Course in Basic & Clinical Immunology (2012 Location: FireSky Resort & Spa, Scottsdale, Arizona (February 26 - March 1, 2012) or the Annual Meeting Travel Award to attend the FOCIS annual meeting.

The series is organized by Dr. Davide Bedognetti (BB&B Director, Associate Director Clinical Center FOCIS Center of Excellence) and is under the supervision of Dr. Francesco Marincola and Dr. Robert Nussenblatt.

Location

The lecture series are held, unless otherwise stated (Noon - 1:00 PM) in the National Institutes of Health Cogan Conference Room of the National Eye Institutes (Room 10N-202, 10th floor), Building 10 on NIH Campus - 10 Center Drive, Bethesda, MD.


Schedule

The lecture series will be inaugurated on Wednesday, October 19 (Noon - 1:30 PM).

Dr. Luca Gattinoni and Dr. Enrico Lugli will illustrate their exciting researches that have allowed to characterize and define a novel T cell population with an enhanced capacity for self-renewal (human stem cell-like memory T cells).
