Defending Our Bodies: Immunity on the Frontlines
Please join us as world-renowned immunologist and La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) Professor and Chief Scientific Officer Mitchell Kronenberg discusses the immune cells on the front lines of infection and their role in inflammatory bowel disease and cancer immunotherapy in our next Live from the Lab webinar on February 2, 2023, from 12:00-1:00 p.m. (PT).

Immune cells patrol our entire body, but their job is especially important at the body’s largest interfaces with the outside world: our skin and intestines. These sites form a physical barrier separating us from many billions of resident microbes. In this Live from the Lab discussion, Dr. Mitchell Kronenberg will describe how he and his team use cutting-edge tools to ultimately achieve Life Without Disease® by investigating how immune cells at border sites protect us from infections and what goes wrong when chronic inflammatory diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease, take hold.

We look forward to having you join us and welcome you to share this opportunity with family and friends that may be interested in learning more about LJI, inflammatory bowel disease and cancer immunotherapy.

Questions for Dr. Kronenberg can be submitted prior to the webinar by emailing Engagement and Stewardship Officer Chelsea Luedeke at cluedeke@lji.org. We will make every effort to answer as many questions as possible during the webinar.

Feb 2, 2023 12:00 PM in Pacific Time (US and Canada)

Mitchell Kronenberg, Ph.D.
Chief Scientific Officer @La Jolla Institute for Immunology
Dr. Kronenberg is an internationally recognized scientist and one of the most highly cited immunologists in the world. This distinction is held by less than one half of one percent of all publishing scientific authors. He received his Ph.D. from the California Institute of Technology in 1983, and stayed on to complete his postdoctoral work before joining the faculty of the UCLA School of Medicine in 1986. At UCLA, he rose through the ranks to full professor. In 1997, he joined La Jolla Institute. In September 2003, Dr. Kronenberg was appointed President of La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) — a role which he served in until 2021. In addition to his executive duties, he serves as Chief Scientific Officer and conducts an active research program.
