"The Sarlacc," by Adam Shields
"The Sarlacc," by Adam Shields. This ants spiracle, or air hole, is 35 microns wide -- smaller than the width of a human hair. The opening leads to the ants respiratory system, a network of hollow tubes that runs throughout its body. "To a nerdy physicist," says Shields, "this image was ...This is an NSF Multimedia Gallery item. (Source: NSF Multimedia Gallery)

Elucidating the regulation of antiviral immune responses in humans
Director's Seminar Series Research in the laboratory headed by Dr. Su is aimed at understanding the molecular regulation of human immune responses in vivo. The laboratory aims to identify the genetic underpinnings of patients who have rare inherited immunodeficiencies that present with virus infections. These patients serve as " experiments of nature " who can more broadly inform us as to what is happening in the healthy immune system. Viruses of particular interest include those that infect the skin such as herpes simplex virus, as well as systemic viruses such as Epstein-Barr virus, and more recently respirator...

Quantitative Control of Macrophage Inflammatory Responses
Immunology Interest Group Rachel Gottschalk obtained her bachelor’s degree in Biology from Emory University in 2005 and went on to earn her Immunology Ph.D. from Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences. She carried out her thesis work in the laboratory of James Allison at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, studying distinct influences of peptide-MHC quality and quantity on T cells responses, including induction of regulatory T cells. Rachel joined the Laboratory of Systems Biology, NIAID in 2012 as a post-doctoral fellow, where she currently studies macrophage signal integration under the mentorship o...

Health in Building Roundtable Conference
This one-day conference, sponsored by the NIH Health in Buildings Roundtable (HiBR), will highlight how research teams are establishing a new knowledge base using wearable and portable devices to assess health outcomes linked to environmental experience. The results of these projects are producing new policy and practices that promote wellness, including enhanced movement, healthy stress outcomes, improved circadian stimulation, and reduction in respiratory illness. The conference will explore issues and challenges of translating complex research findings into design, behavioral guidance, and building operational practices...

Genomics of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
NIH Director's Seminar Series Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS; Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a fatal neurodegenerative disorder that leads to rapidly progressive paralysis and respiratory failure. ALS is the third most common neurodegenerative disease in the Western World, and there are currently no effective therapies. Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the most common form of dementia in the population under the age of 65. An overlap between these two clinically distinct neurological diseases has long been recognized, but the molecular basis of this intersection was unknown. Recently, the Laboratory of Neurogenet...
