Non-canonical innate immunity

Speaker: Dr. Andrés Hidalgo, Ph.D.  – Professor, Department of Immunobiology Yale University | New Haven, CT, United States. Team Leader, Imaging the Cardiovascular Inflammation and the Immune Response, Spanish National Cardiovascular Research Center (CNIC), Madrid, Spain.

Innate immune cells are there to afford protection to the host in an environment that is full of opportunistic pathogens. Or perhaps a better definition is that innate immunity is an extremely adaptable system that facilitates adaptation to an ever changing environment, be it due to infections, age, or other challenges. In his lab, they study the rules of these adaptations by focusing on two major innate immune cells, macrophages, and neutrophils. He will present here the case of neutrophils, the new biology that they and others are discovering as they visit different tissues, and the opportunities that this knowledge opens in biomedical research.
