Walking the line: How tissues balance host defense and tissue integrity
November 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm UTC-5
The immune system poses a constant challenge to host tissues. On one hand, immune cells are essential for the destruction and clearance of infected or transformed cells. However, damage to bystander tissue is an unavoidable consequence of immune activity. Studying the different mechanisms that tissues use to navigate this tradeoff is a major theme of our work.
Discussion with students to follow.
