Mast cells (MCs) are tissue-resident effector cells of the innate and adaptive immune system and major drivers of inflammatory responses. When these responses are directed to pathogens and other environmental threats, MCs play an important role in maintaining health and preventing disease. When MC inflammation is aimed at allergens or autoantigens, these cells significantly contribute to the morbidity of chronic inflammatory disorders. As the scientific community delves deeper into the complexities of inflammatory responses, Genoskin is proud to present its 7th episode of the Naked Immunology webinar series, focusing on the enigmatic world of mast cells.

Webinar Overview

Titled “Mast Cells: Can’t live with them, can’t live without them?”, this webinar delves into the dual nature of mast cells, a key player in immune response and inflammation. Prof. Marcus Maurer, MD, will guide us through the latest research on how these cells contribute to both protective mechanisms against environmental threats and the development of chronic inflammatory conditions, as well as the emerging therapeutic approaches aimed at mitigating their harmful effects.
