How Inflammation Impacts Immunology, infectious Diseases, and Cancer
Professor Carl Ware
This lecture will explore the relationships among inflammation, cancer, and infectious diseases, with particular emphasis on the inter- and intra-cellular communication pathways controlling immune responses. We will discuss processes involving chemicals called cytokines (which regulate decisions of cell survival and death), especially in response to viral pathogens, and we will address translational research that can alter the course of autoimmune and infectious disease and cancer.
