Medicine Grand Rounds, Alex Duncan “Inflammasomes in Infection and Inflammatory Disease: What Can Go Wrong with Host Defense”
September 29, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Dr. Duncan is an infectious diseases specialist and physician scientist. He runs a laboratory focused on understanding the role of the human immune system both in protecting us from infection but also in understanding how host immunity is exploited by pathogens to promote infections. His lab studies host immune response to N. gonorrhoeae and S. aureus, which are both recognized by the CDC as top public health threats in emerging antimicrobial resistance. Dr. Duncan will share why walking into his lab to analyze new data never gets old and how bench side research leads to better patient care.
