Dr. Ellen Zimmermann
Crohn¹s Disease: Radiographic Imaging for Detecting Disease Activity and Complications
Tuesday, August 26th at 12:00 p.m.
Biomedical Science Building, Room JG32

Intestinal inflammation in patients with Crohn¹s disease progresses to tissue fibrosis, leading to significant morbidity.  Impacting this natural history is a major goal of therapy, and a non-invasive test for monitoring disease progression is key to understanding the disease pathogenesis and for optimizing therapies. Our studies are a classic example of using basic science to develop technology that enables the leap from clinical need to clinical practice.

Preeminence Candidate Guest Speaker

The Colleges of Dentistry, Medicine, and Veterinary Medicine cordially invite you to the guest lecture of Dr. Liang Zhou, a visiting candidate for a preeminent mucosal immunology position with the university.  Dr. Zhou is an Assistant Professor of Pathology and Microbiology-Immunology at Northwestern University.  He will be presenting a lecture on Friday, July 25th at Noon in Lecture Hall A of the Veterinary Academic Building, entitled Transcriptional Regulation of T Cell and Innate Lymphoid Cell Responses in the Gut, summarized by Dr. Zhou in the following paragraph:

The focus of our laboratory is to elucidate the mechanisms underlying the impact of environmental factors on immunity and autoimmunity.  Our current focus is on the transcriptional regulation of mucosal barrier function.  The lecture will describe our efforts to investigate the role of the aryl hydrocarbon receptor (Ahr), an environmental sensor and a transcription factor, in gut immunity and inflammation using a combination of mouse genetic, immunological, and biochemical approaches.
