Strategies for Cytosolic Detection of Intracellular Bacterial Pathogens
30 November 2016 12:00 to 13:00 EST
220 Mass. Avenue, Cambridge MA - USA
Speaker: Russell E. Vance HHMI and UC Berkeley
Seminar Abstract: To protect us from infection, the innate immune system must be able to discriminate harmful pathogens from self cells or harmless commensal bacteria. In my seminar I will describe some of the strategies and underlying molecular mechanisms by which the innate immune system detects intracellular bacterial pathogens.
Entry instructions: There is no cost to attend the seminar. If you are interested in attending please contact Meghan Spencer. Please check in with security at the Novartis visitor's entrance of 220 Massachusetts Avenue and you will be directed to the location of the seminar.
