Dr. Anirban Ghosh completed his M.Sc in Zoology from University of Calcutta in 2000 and started his research in the Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research (IPGMER) on brain tumor and glioma immunology. He achieved Junior Research Fellowship from Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Government of India after qualifying the National Eligibility Test (NET) and completed his Ph.D as Senior Research Fellow in 2007 under the guidance of Prof. Swapna Chaudhuri now at School of Tropical Medicine, Kolkata, India. From 2006 onwards, he is engaged in teaching in Zoology at Panihati Mahavidyalaya and acts as invited faculty in M.Sc and M.Phil courses on Immunology in Calcutta University and West Bengal State University. He is presently involved in research on neuroimmunology, particularly role of microglia in development and disease. He is acting as Principal Investigator of Research Projects from different funding Agencies of govt of India like UGC, CSIR, SERB and ICMR. He is also acting reviewers of different research journals, supervising Ph.D students and received several awards.

Myelomonocytes are the multipotent cells in the stage of blood cell differentiation, which mainly comprise blood monocytes, tissue macrophages and subset of dendritic cells. Actually, their position and ability of judgement of the health of tissue or organ environment are the key initiators of tissue-specific immune response in a local and global fashion. Interestingly, the morpho-functional aspects of this group of cells vary to a wide range with their positional diversity. Their ability to communicate or represent the tissue microenvironment to the peripheral immune system and efficiency to engage the system to effector activation hold the key for a successful immune endeavour. The present volume shows some glimpses of such an extensive area of current immunology research.
