"Innate immunity at the crossroads of neurological health and disease" by John Lukens
Sponsored by department(s) : Pharmacology
Event Date : December 1, 2022
Start Time : 4:00 pm
Time Duration: 60 minutes
Location : Pinn 1017
Hosted by Edward Perez-Reyes, John Lukens, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Neuroscience, University of Virginia
The goal of the Luken Lab is to elucidate the roles that the innate immune system plays in neurological disease. We believe that a more complete characterization of the interactions between the immune and nervous systems will lead to improved understanding of complex neurological disorders in humans and will help to identify novel and promising therapeutic targets to treat CNS diseases.
