Mind-Body Problems: Lobotomy, Science, and the Digital Humanities
11th Annual James H. Cassedy Memorial Lecture in the History of Medicine: This talk examines the career of Walter Freeman, the world's foremost exponent of lobotomy. Freeman was also an avid photographer, who almost invariably captured before-and-after images of his patients. The talk explains how Freeman's apparently eccentric practice fit into the larger picture of science and medicine in the mid-20th century, and how digital humanities methods have helped give context and nuance to Freeman's work. It concludes with a consideration of what DH methods might offer to historians of medicine in the twenty-first century.Air d...

Fantastic Voyages through the Historical Audio-Visual Collections at the National Library of Medicine
The National Library of Medicine houses an extraordinary collection of audio-visual materials numbering nearly 40,00 items. Many of these materials, which range from films to videocassettes to sound recordings and beyond, are rare or unique. Taken together, the collection attests to the presence of a largely unknown history of the twentieth century, where medical media educated and persuaded untold millions of patients and doctors, and documented diseases, innovations, and procedures. This talk will present three case studies that illustrate the range of the NLM ’ s collections — a voyage through the history of...

Molecular programs defining tumor-specific T cell dysfunction and therapeutic reprogrammability
Immunology Interest Group T cell responses to cancers differ depending on the nature of the target antigen: tumor antigens that are self-proteins are generally weakly immunogenic due to pre-existing self-tolerance, whereas tumor antigens that are tumor-specific (e.g. mutated proteins) are potentially highly immunogenic because the immune system has not been exposed to these antigens. We recently demonstrated that tumor-specific T cells differentiate to a non-responsive state following initial encounter with tumor antigen, even before the emergence of a pathologically-defined tumor. While this state is initially reversible,...
