Despite the recurring lockdown measures that make working in research particularly challenging nowadays, PhD students from the Moriggl lab nevertheless participated in the Cytokine meeting 2020, that took place online from the 1st until the 4th of November.

Christina Wagner presented our model systems for JAK/STAT gain and loss of function mutations in the form of a lightning talk, which is a pre-recorded talk of 3 minutes/3 slides.

Tobias Suske recorded and uploaded an insightful talk about his research on STAT5BN642H driver mutations.

Christina and Tobi engaged in the online Cytokine meeting.

Tobias Suske receives Milstein Abstract Award for Cytokines 2020 Virtual Meeting

The Award Committee of the International Cytokine and Interferon Society (ICIS) selected Tobias for a Milstein Abstract Award in the amount of $500 in recognition of his presentation. The talk entitled “The Activating STAT5BN642H Driver Mutation Disrupts T Cell Development Progressing to T Cell Neoplasia” was given in the session “Structure-Function and Systems Biology of Cytokine Actions”.

Congratulations Christina and Tobi, and thank you ICIS for this great event! 🙂
