    Ep. 31: “Autoimmune Diseases and B Cell Immunity” Featuring Dr. Mark Shlomchik

    Ep. 31: “Autoimmune Diseases and B Cell Immunity” Featuring Dr. Mark Shlomchik

    Dr. Mark Shlomchik is a UPMC Endowed Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Immunology at the University of Pittsburgh. He is also a Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of BlueSphere Bio, a company working to create individualized T cell therapies for the treatment of cancer. Dr. Shlomchik’s lab focuses on systemic autoimmune diseases, long-lived B cell immunity, and immunopathogenesis. He talks about the role of toll-like receptors in lupus, how his autoimmune disease research led to potential cancer therapies, and starting a biotech company with his brother.

    “AAI 2022: Epithelial Immunity” Featuring Dr. Shruti Naik

    Dr. Shruti Naik is an Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences at New York University Langone Medical Center. She studies immunity in the epithelial tissues that line our body to understand how environmental stimuli collaborate with genetic factors to influence health and drive disease at these interfaces. She discusses the work she's presenting at the American Association of Immunologists' annual meeting, IMMUNOLOGY2022, on trained immunity and immune-epithelial crosstalk in tissue repair.
