Congratulations to M&I faculty member Maureen Su, winner of a Jefferson-Pilot Fellowship that recognizes outstanding junior faculty. It’s been a good month for Maureen, who also just learned that she has been promoted to Associate Professor with tenure. See the link below for an engaging interview in which she describes her path from valley girl (her words!) to physician-scientist and her current work on autoimmunity.
Our own immune cells can destroy other healthy cells to cause severe and chronic diseases. Maureen Su, MD, a 2014 Jefferson-Pilot award winner, studies how this autoimmunity happens and what it might tell us about potential cancer therapies.
