The Department of Immunobiology invites you to join the seminar series "Long-term Adaptive Immune Responses To Support Network Recovery After Stroke" presented by Ann Stowe, PhD.
Immunobiology students are required to attend.
Faculty are encouraged to attend.
Ann Stowe, PhD has an overarching hypothesis that the immune system – driven by an autoreactivity to Central Nervous System (CNS)-derived antigens plays a fundamental role in neuronal plasticity within the CNS. B cells, T cells, and natural killer (NK) T cells comprise the adaptive component of the immune system, with their interactions initiated by antigen recognition. In stroke, she hypothesizes that long-term plasticity requires autoreactive T and B cell responses within the parenchyma, derived from lymphocyte populations sensitized to CNS antigens in the periphery.
