Department of Infectious Diseases & Immunology Seminar Guest Speaker Dr. Mark Sundrud
The Infectious Diseases & Immunology Seminar Series (VME 6933) Presents: “Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery: A Hepatocyte-like Transcriptional Module in T cells Dictates Small Bowel Homeostasis” by Mark Sundrud, PhD; Associate Professor, Department of Immunology & Microbiology at the Scripps Research Institute, Florida Campus.
The Sundrud laboratory is focused on the identification and regulation of pro-inflammatory T cell subsets that are involved in the development and persistence of chronic inflammatory disorders. The laboratory integrates the use of clinical human tissue samples, primary T cell culture techniques, mouse models of autoimmunity, and molecular biology and biochemistry to forge new insight into the development and pathogenesis of inflammation. The lab is particularly interested in metabolic and stress response pathways that control T cell development and function.
