Domenico Mavilio, M.D., from the National Institute of Health's laboratory of immunoregulation, will present a lecture on the “Role of Natural Killer Cells in the Pathogenesis of HIV-1 Infection” on Friday, Oct. 22 at 3 p.m. at Vanderbilt Medical Center.

Sponsored by the Vanderbilt Meharry Center For AIDS Research, the lecture will be open to the public and held in Room 1220, MRB III. Mavilio will present data that suggest the expansion of highly dysfunctional CD56neg NK cell subset in HIV viremic individuals largely accounts for the impaired function of the total NK cell population.
