Watch today - VALIDATE Workshop - NIH101: A Guide to Applying for National Institutes of Health Funding
49 VALIDATE members gathered on Zoom to hear Dr Katrin Eichelberg provide invaluable advice on finding funding from the US's National Institutes of Health and tips on putting together an application.

Next week - Targeting Immunometabolism in Host Defense Against Mycobacterium Tuberculosis with Dr Luciana Balboa
14 December - 15:00 GMT
In this seminar, Dr Balboa will discuss how her team focused on unravelling the immunometabolic pathways that regulates leucocytes’ functions and their impact on the control of TB. To study the impact of TB-associated microenvironment on the functionality of M1 macrophages, they used the acellular fraction of pleural effusions from TB patients (TB-PE). Interestingly, they found that M1 macrophages exposed to TB-PE displayed a lower expression of HIF-1α and a reduced glycolytic activity, impairing the control of bacterial growth.
