Translational Research Symposium Speaker Spotlight - Dr Claudia Nold

Doctor Claudia Nold
Monash University's 3rd annual Translational Research Symposium is being hosted by its three metropolitan clinical schools on 31 July 2017. The symposium will host a diverse group of medical researchers presenting their work into translational research. RSVP here.

Doctor Claudia Nold is a research group head for the Interventional Immunology in Neonatal Diseases group and also part of the School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health.

Doctor Nold will be presenting on "Translating a Cytokine into a Therapeutic:  From Promise to Product". Abstract:
-----------------------------
The discovery of the anti-inflammatory function of IL-37, which Dr Nold published in Nature Immunology in 2010, had a major impact on the interleukin field and necessitated a reorganisation of the IL-1 family nomenclature. Five years later, she discovered the IL-37 receptor complex, as again reported in Nature Immunology. Next, she and her team identified critical regions in the IL-37 structure and generated a modified IL-37 biologic with enhanced anti-inflammatory properties. Besides publication in Science Immunology, this research led to an industry collaboration that aims to develop immunotherapeutics for a range of inflammatory diseases.
-----------------------------

We look forward to welcoming Doctor Nold for the Symposium!
