IIG Seminar - Immunological Mechanisms of Cancer Defense: Reining in Dynamic Cancer Cell and Microenvironment Reciprocity
IIG Seminar The immune system employs two distinct defense strategies against infections: microbe-directed pathogen destruction typified by type 1 immunity, and host-directed pathogen containment exemplified by type 2 immunity in induction of tissue repair. Akin to infectious diseases, cancer progresses with cancer cell acquisition of microorganism-like behavior propagating at the expense of the host. While immunological mechanisms of cancer cell destruction are well defined, whether immune-mediated cancer cell containment can be induced is poorly understood. In this presentation, I will discuss how type 2 immunity can be ...

Strategies for Neuroprotection and Myelin Repair
NIH Neuroscience Series Seminar Our ability to move, think, perceive, is dependent on a timely transmission of information among specialized cells called neurons. This information is sent via a series of electrical impulses that travel along specialized structures called " axons " , whose ability to conduct signal is dependent on the presence of " myelin " . Myelin is a fatty substance composed of lipids and proteins that is an integral component of a cell called " oligodendrocyte " . Oligodendrocytes are the myelin-forming cells of the CNS and are essential for brain function. Oligodendrocyte...

Fire and Freedom: Food and Enslavement in Early America
History of Medicine Lecture What stories can meals tell us about people and places? Meals can tell us how power is exchanged between and among different peoples, races, genders, and classes. In the Chesapeake region, during the early colonial era, European settlers survived by relying upon indentured servants, Native Americans, and African slave labor for life-saving knowledge of farming and food acquisition. Without this knowledge, Europeans suffered poor nutrition, in addition to widespread illness caused by the lack of medical care. Despite their perilous position, the colonists used human resources, the natural environ...
