BSI webinar: B cells and antibodies - what does 'good' look like?

This free webinar is part of the British Society for Immunology's series 'Connecting on coronavirus: the expert hub'.

This session is presented by Professor Deborah Dunn-Walters from the University of Surrey on the topic 'B cells and antibodies – what does 'good' look like?​'


Speaker: Professor Deborah Dunn-Walters, Professor of Immunology in the School of Biosciences and Medicine at the University of Surrey.

We hear a lot about the production of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2, but not all B cells go on to produce antibodies, and of those that do, some produce a different type of antibodies than others.  Making good antibodies without making potentially harmful ones is the goal of vaccines, but do we know how to tell the difference easily?

Due to internet connection problems, there were a substantial number of questions from the audience that went unanswered. In our Q&A with Professor Deborah Dunn-Walters, she very kindly takes the time to address some of these questions for the audience.
