Allergy/Immunology Learning Objectives:
- Adopt new knowledge and updates on Practice Parameters/Guidelines for Allergy/Immunology
- Explore new scientific data improving outcomes for Asthma (decrease in ER visits, hospitalizations, improving quality of life, decreased missed school/work days, etc.) and allergic diseases
- Outline how to improve outcomes in Primary Immune Diseases by learning new scientific developments
Presenter Learning Objective(s):
Two of the most important functions of cytotoxic T and NK cells are target cell killing, and production of pro-inflammatory cytokines. The qualitative differences in the temporal kinetics and duration of these two functions suggest the possibility of major differences in how these functions are regulated at the molecular level. Defining this in terms of signaling cascades can help tailor effector functions of T and NK cells for immunotherapeutic strategies. This presentation will summarize our laboratory’s work related to the proximal and intermediate steps in signal transduction that take place in NK or T cells and how these shared or unique signaling molecules interact with their partners to elicit specific effector functions.
