Welcome to the Sahlgrenska Academy Science Seminars, a series of seminars on Thursdays at 15-16. The seminars are, during fall 2020, conducted through Zoom Webinars.
Here is the link to the webinar: https://gu-se.zoom.us/j/68304280892
The seminars are open to anyone interested in taking part of scientific breakthroughs and projects in the medicine and health science field, scientists, students and other staff from GU, VGR and other organisations with the common interest of medicine and health science.
Lymphoma is a cancer of our immune system, the cells within our bodies that protect us from invading pathogens. There are many different types of lymphoma reflecting the complexity of our immune systems but by its most basic description lymphomas are derived from either B or T lymphocytes (white blood cells). One category of B cell lymphoma is Hodgkin disease named after the first person to recognise this form of cancer in the first half of the 19th century. All other forms of lymphoma come under the umbrella of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma or NHL. There are many forms of NHL and the World Health Organisation (WHO) recognises at least 35 different types, a number which is increasing as we discover more about this group of diseases.
The Turner lab focuses on paediatric NHL of both a B and T cell origin, unraveling how and why these cancers develop, and using this information to design better therapies.
