Dr Das presents his research into a new type of T cell abundant in unborn children but not in adults, and their potential role in preventing infection in newborn children.
50% of all deaths in children under five occur within the first 28 days of life, and half of these are caused by infection. This equates to 3500 potentially preventable deaths every day in children under 5.
Dr Das’ research has uncovered a new type of T cell, named CXCL8+ effector T cells, and explores what their role might be in the neonatal immune system and preventing sepsis.
Dr Abhishek Das is an Academic Clinical Lecturer at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
Our Clinical Academics in Training Annual Conference, or CATAC, offers early career researchers the chance to present work and receive feedback from senior panelists in a truly interdisciplinary setting. The conference gives clinical academics the chance to meet people from all areas of biomedical science, and share ideas from many different perspectives.
