Cultured human corneal endothelial cells: miRNA for qualification of the quality of cHCECs Abstract for Discussion at the Tuesday Weekly Seminar Meeting: MiRNA expression profiles among a variety of morphologically different cultured human corneal endothelial cells (cHCECs) revealed a clear distinction among them. The only miR capable of discriminating a CD44- subpopulation (SP) from SPs with CD44++~CD44+++ phenotypes was identified as miR34a. Interestingly, for cases of advanced gutatta, upregulated miRs from the 378 family in the corneal endothelium dramatically decreased…

The role of the endothelium in allogeneic transplantations Dr. Olaf Penack is a Senior Physician in the Medical Deptartment of the Division of Hematology, Oncology and Tumor Immunology at Charité Hospital Berlin (Virchow Campus). In this talk, he will discuss the urgent need for novel therapeutic approaches to improve survival of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT), which is the only curative treatment for many patients with hematologic malignancies. However, survival after HSCT is <50% because patients die frequently from graft-versus-host…

Macrophages are specialised cells of the immune system. They are involved not only in infection, inflammatory disease and cancer, but also in normal growth and development and tissue repair.  Three main research questions for  Professor Hume and his team are: 1) on a genome-wide scale, how do macrophages differentiate from their common precursors in the bone marrow under the influence of factors such as macrophage colony-stimulating factor (CSF-1) and interleukin 34 (IL34)? 2) how are mature cells of this lineage…
