Prof. Gwendalyn Randolph, Washington University School of Medicine St. Louis, USA
Let it go! (or not): regulation of the dissemination of cells and molecules from tissues during inflammation
host: Sirpa Jalkanen (

Coffee and sandwich served at 11:45

Gwendalyn J. Randolph is the Emil R. Unanue Distinguished Professor in the Department of Immunology and Pathology at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, where she is currently co-director of the Immunology Graduate Program. During her postdoctoral work, Randolph characterized monocyte differentiation to dendritic cells and macrophages and made advances in our understanding of dendritic cell trafficking and the fate of monocytes recruited to sites of inflammation. Her lab has contributed to the Immunological Genome Project by characterizing macrophage gene expression. Her work now focuses on the immunological mechanisms driving atherosclerosis and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) by exploring lymphatic function and lipoprotein trafficking.

Gwendalyn J. Randolph will be Sina Tadayon’s opponent 21.9.2022 and she will give a seminar 22.9.2022 at noon.
