Prof Matthew CollinProf Matthew Collin is Professor of Haematology at Newcastle University and Director of theNorthern Centre for Bone Marrow Transplantation at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals. Hiswork is dedicated to the analysis of human dendritic cells and macrophages in vivo throughthe Human Dendritic Cell Lab founded in 2008 at Newcastle University. His work was amongthe first to separate human dendritic cells and macrophages from tissues and to demonstratethe longevity and monocyte-independence of tissue macrophage populations. With FlorentGinhoux at A*STAR Singapore, work in the Human DC Lab was instrumental in definingmouse-human parallels in the dendritic cell system including identification of the humantissue equivalent of mouse CD8 cDC1 and mapping of the CD14 dermal cell to a monocytemacrophage lineage. More recently he was among several investigators who independentlyidentified heterozygous GATA2 mutation as the cause of a novel syndrome of mononuclearcell deficiency leading to myelodysplasia and acute myeloid leukaemia. GATA2 and IRF8mutation have been identified as genetic causes of dendritic cell deficiency, defining a newcategory of human primary immunodeficiency. His work also includes studies of histiocytosisusing somatic mutation to track the clonal origin of Langerhans cell histiocytosis and ErdheimChester disease and exploitation of monocyte-derived cells as potential therapeutic targets ingraft versus host disease. Studies from the Human DC Lab are published in the New EnglandJournal of Medicine, Immunity, J Exp Med, Blood and British Journal of Haematology. Matthewis a member of the American Society of Hematology, British Society for Haematology, Fellowof the Royal College of Pathologists and Member of the Royal College of Physicians of the UK.Prof Matthew Collin will present in the Haematology scientific stream.Dr Laura CollinsDr Laura Collins is the Director of the Division of Anatomic Pathology at Beth Israel DeaconessMedical Center in Boston, MA and an Associate Professor of Pathology at Harvard MedicalSchool.

Dr Jacob uses molecular genetics to understandcomplex, multifactorial disease. His passion for improving the lives of critically ill patients has beenthe catalyst for his determination to bring whole genome sequencing into a clinical setting. Dr.Jacob received his PhD in pharmacology from the University of Iowa in 1989. He completed twoparallel postdoctoral fellowships in functional genomics and molecular genetics and genomics atHarvard, Stanford and MIT.
