Does your research require assaying immune responses in cattle and sheep? Do you seek to better define cell populations in ruminants?

The ability to identify immunological correlates of protection is a key element of vaccine development. This is challenging in farmed ruminants due to the relative lack of reagents to fully characterize cattle and sheep immune responses compared to laboratory rodents. To help address this gap in capability, researchers at the Moredun Research Institute and The Roslin Institute at the University of Edinburgh have been collaborating on a project specifically to develop and characterize immunological reagents for cattle and sheep to underpin vaccine research.

webinar-vet3Join Professor Gary Entrican, Principal Research Scientist at the Moredun Research Institute, and AbD Serotec to discover more about this project on Thursday July 9th through a webinar titled ‘Measuring adaptive and innate immune responses in ruminants’.

The background to the research work will be described and data will be presented to show the highlights of the work carried out over the last three years. The focus will be on advances made on the characterization of myeloid cell subsets in peripheral blood and methods to identify CD4+ve T cells that produce IL-17.

This talk will be of interest to researchers seeking to:

  • Develop improved vaccines and measure correlates of protection
  • Characterize ruminant adaptive and innate immune cell populations
  • Advance the knowledge of ruminant disease pathogenesis and translational research
