National Academy of Science Mini-Symposium

We hear from 3 of the 5 NIH Scientists elected to the National Academy in 2024.

Tuesday, September 24, 2024
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
  • Thomas Kunkel investigates the fidelity and efficiency of DNA replication and the DNA repair processes that control cell survival and genome stability. His lab also studies how environmental stresses perturb these processes, resulting in cell death, cellular mutations, and adverse effects on human health.
  • Kyung J. Kwon-Chung studies Cryptococcus neoformans and Aspergillus fumigatus, two of the most common and serious fungal pathogens that primarily affect patients with weakened immune systems. Her research probes factors that make patients more likely to contract these fungal infections, as well as how patients' bodies respond to them.
  • Giorgio Trinchieri examines many aspects of the complex cross-talk between inflammation and cancer, including the molecular and cellular mechanisms regulating the activity of certain classes of immune cells and how the environment around a tumor interacts with the immune system to suppress an immune response to the disease.
