HLH Educational Session Speakers

Scott Canna

Dr. Scott Canna has been committed to translational research in autoinflammatory diseases and cytokine storm syndromes since 2005. This began with training in human translational autoinflammation at the NIH, where he contributed to the first trials of Interleukin-1 blockade in patients with mutations of the NLRP3 inflammasome. It continued through work characterizing murine models of Macrophage Activation Syndrome (MAS). It extended to the discovery that NLRC4 inflammasome hyperactivity drove both elevated IL-18 (the other inflammasome-activated cytokine) and life-threatening MAS. His independent research program began in 2017, working to elucidate the contexts and mechanisms by which excess IL-18 promotes hyperinflammatory responses. Along the way, his group’s biomarker work has identified the specific human contexts in which IL-18 rises above the normal suppression by IL-18 binding protein and IL-18 is “free” to drive inflammation. Translating this work, his group demonstrated that IL-18 blockade may be a rational and feasible treatment strategy in NLRC4-MAS, and they are helping drive the development of several clinical trials of IL-18 blockade in autoinflammatory diseases.

Guest Speaker

Jonathan Kipnis

Dr. Jonathan (Jony) Kipnis is BJC Investigator, Alan A. and Edith L. Wolff Distinguished Professor of Pathology and Immunology and Professor of Neurology, Neuroscience, and Neurosurgery at Washington University in St. Louis, School of Medicine. He is also the inaugural Director of Brain immunology and Glia (BIG) Center at Washington University. Jony graduated from the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, where he was a Sir Charles Clore scholar and a recipient of distinguished prize for scientific achievements awarded by the Israeli Parliament, The Knesset.

Kipnis lab focuses on the complex interactions between the immune system and the central nervous system (CNS). The goal is to elucidate the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying these interactions in neurodegenerative, neurodevelopmental, and mental disorders as well as in physiology (including healthy aging). They showed that the brain function is dependent, in part, on the function and integrity of the immune system and that immune molecules (cytokines) can play neuromodulatory roles. The fascination with immunity and its role in neurophysiology is what brought the lab to a breakthrough discovery of meningeal lymphatic vessels that drain the CNS into the peripheral lymph nodes and thus serve as a physical connection between the brain and the immune system. This finding challenged the prevailing mechanisms underlying CNS “immune privilege” and opened new avenues to mechanistically study the nature of neuroimmune interactions under physiological and pathological conditions. The implications of this work are broad and range from Autism to Alzheimer’s disease through neuroinflammatory conditions, such as Multiple Sclerosis. Recently Kipnis lab has also identified the skull and vertebrae bone marrow niches as local immune reservoirs for the brain and the spinal cord, whose role in neurological disorders is yet unknown.

Dr. Kipnis is a member of National Academy of Medicine and among other awards, he is a recipient NIH Director’s Pioneer award for 2018 to explore in more depth neuro-immune interactions in healthy and diseased brain and National Institute on Aging MERIT award to study the role of meningeal immunity and lymphatics in aging and Alzheimer’s disease.

Meet the Expert - HLH Speaker

Ed Behrens

Dr. Ed Behrens is the Chief, Division of Rheumatology, Co-Leader, Immune Dysregulation Frontier Program, and Joseph Lee Hollander Endowed Chair in Pediatric Rheumatology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.  He is an expert in systemic hyperinflammatory diseases and in particular hemophagocytic syndromes.  He helped to found and lead the Immune Dysregulation program at CHOP, a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and genetic counselors from across all subspecialties, which provides diagnostic and therapeutic solutions for children with undiagnosed immune conditions.

Dr. Behrens' research program centers on the pathogenesis of Cytokine Storm Syndrome, a common pathologic endpoint of a heterogeneous group of initiating diseases. Cytokine Storm Syndrome results in multi-organ failure and a stereotypical immune response including increased serum ferritin and Interferon gamma that leads to the organ failure itself. He is specifically interested in dissecting the initiating, propagating, and regulatory factors that determine the pace and outcome of cytokine storm. This is accomplished using a number of different murine models including perforin deficient mice, repeated TLR9 agonist injections, and other murine systems of systemic inflammation. The ultimate goal of these investigations is to improve the lives of patients that suffer from Cytokine Storm Syndrome by developing strategies for treatment and prevention.

Presentations nominated for the Nezelof Prize in Basic Science

Sabrin Albetuni

 Dr. Sabrin Albeituni is a Scientist in the Department of Oncology at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Dr. Albeituni completed her undergraduate studies in Biology at Birzeit Univiersity in Palestine and earned her PhD in Microbiology and Immunology in 2015 from the University of Louisville, KY. Following the completion of her doctoral degree, she pursued a postdoctoral training under the guidance of Dr. Kim Nichols at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.

Her research aims to investigate the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the pathogenesis of hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). HLH is a life-threatening hyperinflammatory syndrome characterized by excessive immune cell activation and multi-system organ failure. Through her research, Dr. Albeituni aims to further develop novel therapeutic strategies to dampen hyperinflammation and improve clinical outcomes.

Dr. Albeituni demonstrated in preclinical murine models of HLH that the JAK1/2 inhibitor, ruxolitinib, ameliorates the clinical manifestations of disease through IFN-gamma dependent and independent mechanisms. She published several research articles demonstrating the efficacy of JAK1/2 inhibition in ameliorating the cytokine storm in HLH. Her work set the ground for a clinical trial that is being sponsored by St. Jude for the use of a response-adapted ruxolitinib-containing regimen for the treatment of HLH.  Currently, she has a strong interest in understanding the regulation of T cell responses by myeloid cells during normal immune homeostasis and in disorders associated with hyperinflammation.
