Insights: Inflammation and autoimmune diseases
Our immune system is our most vigilant protector. Every day, it defends us from disease and repairs damage to our body. So what do we do when it doesn’t function correctly, or worse, turns on us? More than 80 diseases result from dysfunction of the immune system. In the U.S. alone, 24 million people have autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, Crohn’s, or rheumatoid arthritis. Regardless of the type of autoimmune diseases, there is one commonality amongst them all - the immune system is attacking the body’s own organs, tissues and cells.

Join Dr. Carl Ware to explore the immune system and learn how breakthrough research is leading to new knowledge, treatments, and cures.

• Learn how the immune system works and why people’s systems react and respond differently.
• Are certain people more susceptible to autoimmune disease? Learn about factors that may increase or decrease your chance of having an autoimmune disease.
• What are checkpoint inhibitors? What role do they play in immune function and can we develop medicines to help them fight disease?
• Hear about exciting new research and clinical trials currently in progress with implications for autoimmune diseases and cancer.

A Q&A session will follow the presentation and will give you an opportunity to personally connect with our scientists and have your questions answered.
