Christoph Scheiermann studied biochemistry at the Freie University (FU) Berlin, Germany. He received his Ph.D. in vascular biology with Sussan Nourshargh from Imperial College London, UK, before joining the laboratory of the late Paul S. Frenette at Mount Sinai School of Medicine and later the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, USA, for postdoctoral work. He is the recipient of an Emmy-Noether award from the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) and a Starting and Consolidator grant from the European Research Council (ERC).

Talk Overview

Professor Scheiermann’s research focuses on circadian and neural control of immune functions using an interdisciplinary approach at the intersection of immunology, biochemistry and physiology. He will discuss his latest work which provides further evidence that the time of the day of immunotherapy such as vaccination influences the adaptive immune response.
