TOPIC: The Force Awakens: Induction of Innate Immune Memory
Presenter: Dr. Angela Bordin
Dr. Angela Bordin received her D.V.M.-equivalent degree from the Universidade Federal de Santa Maria (Brazil) in 2002. Dr. Bordin has a M.S. degree from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Brazil) in 2005, and received a Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from Texas A&M in 2014.

Our monthly presentations are no more than one hour long and cover a variety of topics we believe you will find interesting. Also, all sessions are recorded and made available in our Forums for viewing on-demand by our members at a later time.
