MIMG Seminar Series-Daniel Mucida, PhD
Event Date & TimeMarch 30, 2023 at 12:00 PM-1:00 PM
LocationVirtual via Zoom
Dr. Daniel Mucida is a Professor and Investigator at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigating Immunology, Virology, & Microbiology.
A major focus of the lab is the development and function of leukocytes that are stimulated by antigens and other cues from the surrounding intestinal tissue. These include intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs), a class of specialized T cells found within and just below the intestinal epithelium. The lab’s work has demonstrated a remarkable degree of plasticity in these cells, which constantly survey the entire epithelial layer. Mucida’s ongoing work continues to define how IELs contribute to the immunological balance within the gut, including their role in protecting against infections and regulating colorectal cancer.
This seminar is virtual only.
