Nobel laureate Bruce Beutler, M.D., will discuss his research on innate immunity during a noon seminar Monday, Sept. 23, in 208 Light Hall.
The seminar, hosted by graduate students in Pathology, Microbiology and Immunology, is open to the Vanderbilt community.
Beutler shared the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Jules Hoffman, Ph.D., and the late Ralph Steinman, M.D., for his work on innate immunity and the discovery of an important family of receptors that allows mammals to sense microbial infections.
He directs the Center for the Genetics of Host Defense at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas.
