Speaker: Edana Cassol, Department of Health Sciences
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and work. It has also increased public awareness of newly emerging viruses. Our immune system plays a critical role in protecting us from viral infections. However, if these responses are not tightly regulated, they can cause damage to surrounding tissues. In this Science Café, Dr. Cassol will discuss how the immune system recognizes and responds to viruses, and how dysregulation of these processes can contribute to the development of disease. She will also discuss her recent research evaluating how metabolism can be used to fine tune antiviral immune responses.
