Talk Title: Resident memory T cell zonation in health and HIV disease
Marcus Buggert, PhD – Karolinska Institutet
Marcus Buggert defended his PhD Thesis in 2014 at the Dept of Laboratory Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Sweden on the role of T cells in natural control of HIV infection. Joined Dr. Michael Betts’ laboratory at University of Pennsylvania (Upenn) in 2014 for post-doctoral studies.
During these studies, he pursued multiple projects including the first identification and characterization of resident and recirculating memory T cells in the context of HIV and other human viral infections (Cell, Science Immunology, STM etc).
Since 2018, he is back in Sweden. Joined the Center for Infection Medicine, Karolinska Institutet the same year as an Assistant Professor. His group focuses our work on studies of human circulating and resident memory T cells in the context of health and viral disease – including HIV and COVID-19.
