11:00 Sebastian giving a virtual talk in Dresden (Michele Solimena):
Empty HLA/MHC class I molecules: trafficking, cluster formation, and their use in tumor immunotherapy
MHC class I molecules present intracellular peptides to the T cells of the immune system. They are excellent model systems for protein folding ligand selection, and intracellular transport. I will present work on the ER-Golgi transport of the peptide-free form of class I molecules, some new data on the formation of MHC class I clusters at the cell surface, and also how these investigations have led us to design a disulfide-stabilized form of class I that can be used to make superior recombinant MHC class I tetramers to detect, isolate, and stimulate tumor-reactive T cells in an antigen-specific manner.

Online meetings information
- Link to the Springergroup team on Teams (ask me if you would like to join)
Prepare your presentation
- Which paper to present? Please pick a paper from the Journal club paper suggestions, or discuss the paper with Sebastian beforehand.
- Please practice your talk, and take a look at the "How to give great presentations" pages.
- Please make sure, by shortening and adequate preparation, that your talk is not longer than 45 minutes.
- At the beginning of your talk, please make the following statement: "I picked this paper because…" (for example: it is beautiful; it represents the following breakthrough; it has a great new method; the conclusions are beautifully argumented)
- For each set of data that you show (you don't need to show all the data), explain and then state: "I agree/don't agree/only partially agree with the conclusions of the authors because…".
- At the end of your talk, please make the following statement: "This means the following for our work: …" .
- Please look at this advice for presenting your own data to the group.
Announce your presentation
- Three working days before the meeting, please email all members of the group and the guests with the title of the presentation and the paper if it is a journal club). Here is the list of people to email:
