Prof. Kingston Mills - Local T cells and their subversion in protective immunity to infection in the respiratory tract

Respiratory infection with Bordetella pertussis causes whooping cough. The infection is controlled by innate immune responses, but complete bacterial clearance from the respiratory tract and protection against re-infection is mediated largely by Th1 and Th17 cells. However the bacteria has evolved sophisticated immune subversion strategies to subvert these responses Antigen-specific regulatory T (Treg) cells that secrete IL-10 are induced in the respiratory tract during B. pertussis infection and suppress protective T cell responses. Pertussis disease can be prevented in children by immunization with acellular pertussis (aP) vaccines. However, aP vaccines ...

PANEL 6: THE CAPITALISM’S WAR ON HUMAN LIVES

Dr Elżbieta Sikora - Supercritical CO2 plant extracts as raw materials in modern cosmetic formulations

New products containing active substances from the plants are systematically appearing on the cosmetics market. Among others natural products, based on raw materials that meet the standards set for natural and organic cosmetics (COSMOS), are becoming more and more popular.The extracts obtained under supercritical CO2 conditions (SC-CO2) are an interesting alternative to plant extracts obtained by traditional methods. The parameters of the SC-CO2 process allow to obtain extracts of very high purity, free from contamination with conventional solvents. Additionally, relatively low temperatures and anaerobic atmosphere during the process, avoid oxidation and thermal decomposition of the bioactive components contained in ...

Dr Avril Horne - Participatory environmental flows assessments

Several of the key challenges to implementing environmental flows are related to the social and political context of environmental flows projects. These include community acceptance and buy in, political will and legislation, as well as effective stakeholder engagement.  Despite this, in many countries there remains a delineation between environmental and social outcomes, and the process to determine environmental flows requirements remains a predominantly technocratic approach placing a large emphasis on scientific understandings of rivers.  Using the Goulburn River, Victoria, Australia as a case study, this presentation will discuss the ...

Dave Pritchard - Action for culture and the water environment through the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands

The intergovernmental Ramsar Convention on Wetlands celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.  Its global treaty provisions and conservation policy frameworks have always been based on the best available ecological and hydrological science.  Over the years, however, there has been a growing appreciation that truly sustainable strategies depend just as much on understanding societal factors, Indigenous knowledge, community traditions and contemporary advances in transdisciplinary research.  A body of guidance materials, knowledge exchange initiatives and cooperation activities on the subject of culture and wetlands within the framework of the Convention has consequently taken ...

Dr Tim Jardine - Canada’s freshwater deltas as complex and vulnerable social-ecological systems.

In north-western Canada, glacial retreat left behind large lakes that led to the development of three massive freshwater deltas (Peace-Athabasca, Slave and Saskatchewan).  The productivity of these delta floodplains drew both wildlife and humans, leading to strong cultural connections to the landscape and economic opportunities through the fur trade, fisheries and guiding. But throughout the 20th century, upstream water resource development coupled with oil and gas exploration has altered the quantity and quality of water entering the deltas, affecting plant and animal populations, livelihoods, health and social relations.  In this presentation, ...

Grégory Schütz, D’Augustodurum à Bayeux. Synthèse des connaissances sur la ville à l’époque gallo-romaine

Cette communication se propose de faire le point sur nos connaissances sur les origines gallo-romaines de Bayeux (Calvados). Si la ville est en effet notoirement connue pour sa Tapisserie du XIe s., pour son patrimoine bâti médiéval et moderne, notre perception des premiers temps de l’agglomération pendant l’Antiquité restait jusqu’à présent assez floue. Fort de nombreuses découvertes archéologiques menées ces trente dernières années et de la reprise d’un certain nombre de données acquises au XIXe s. et au début du XXe s., l’exploitation des archives du sous-sol nous permet désormais de dessiner un portrait plus détaillé de cette capitale de ...
