    Immune Cells Take Cue from Animal Kingdom: Together, Everyone Achieves More

    Much like birds fly in flocks to conserve energy, dolphins swim in pods to mate and find food, and colonies of ants create complex nests to protect their queens, immune cells engage in coordinated behavior to wipe out viruses like the flu. That's according to a new study published in the journal Science by researchers at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry.

    The findings reveal, for the first time, how immune cells work together to get to their final destination – the site of an injury or infection. The body is expansive and a virus or bacteria can take hold in any number of locations: the lungs, the throat, the skin, the stomach or the ear, just to name a few. How do immune cells, specifically the ones that are responsible for killing foreign invaders, know where to go?

    1st Annual Immune Imaging Symposium To Be Held November 7, 2015

    The Program for Advanced Immune Bioimaging at the University of Rochester will host the 1st Annual Immune Imaging Symposium November 7th, 2015 from 8:30 am – 5pm.

    The free symposium will provide a forum where the newest developments in understanding immune function through visualizing immunity ‘in action' will be shared and discussed. The goal of the symposium is to foster lively scientific discussion, exchange of ideas and future collaborations. We have an exciting program including a distinguished group of international speakers, an interactive poster session and opportunities for oral presentations from students and postdoctoral fellows.

    For more information and to register, visit the Immune Imaging Symposium website.
