Pfaundler-MedailleIn memory of the legendary pediatric physician-scientist Meinhard von Pfaundler, director of the Dr. von Hauner Children’s Hospital from 1906 to 1939, we initiated this Lecture Series aiming to foster academic thinking and to give accolade to leaders in the field of translational science.

On January 26th, we will welcome Charles Dinarello, Professor at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, Denver, USA, and the Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. Professor Dinarello is considered a founding father of cytokine biology. He was the first to purify interleukin-1 (IL-1) and identify IL-1α and IL-1β. His work laid the foundation for understanding inflammatory processes in infections, injuries and cancer.

All interested are welcome, no registration needed.
