Event Overview

The immune system protects humans against a litany of internal and external threats. However, the immune system can also go awry, resulting in chronic inflammation or autoimmune disorders that weaken host defenses and deleteriously exacerbate co-morbidities. In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Klaus Ley and Neeloffer Mookherjee will explore the relationships between inflammation, autoimmunity, and pathology, and how researchers can harness these relationships for therapeutic purposes.

Topics covered
  • Characterizing autoimmune responses that exacerbate atherosclerosis
  • Harnessing host defenses to selectively control inflammation in chronic disease
  • Thursday, December 16, 2021
    2:30 - 4:00 PM Eastern Time
