Featured Events

University Lecture, Dr. Alexander Rudensky

Tuesday, September 6, 2022 at 4:00pm, Reception at 5:00pm

Dr. Rudensky is considered the world’s leading authority on a subset of blood cells that are critical for the regulation of the body’s response to pathogens. Studying these cells provides insights into the fundamental biology of the immune system. Recent data indicate that targeted manipulation of these cells represent a novel and important therapeutic tool that will have far-ranging implications for human health.
