Annual Church Lecture
Innate immunity in West Nile virus and Zika virus infection: emerging neurotropic flaviviruses
The Richard D. Church Lectureship Endowment presents The Annual Church Lecture in Neuroscience
MICHAEL GALE, JR.
University of Washington School of Medicine
Monday, October 16, 2017, 7 P.M.
Michael Gale, Jr., PhD, is a Professor in the Department of Immunology at The University of Washington, School of Medicine. Gale’s research is focused on understanding the virus-host interactions that regulate innate immunity against flavivirus infection, including West Nile virus, Zika virus, Dengue virus, and others.
The Annual Church Lecture series was established in 2006 by the late Richard Dwight Church of Norwood, NY. At the time, Mr. Church stated his hope in endowing this lectureship was “…that by learning about current thinking in the field of neuroscience, students and faculty will be inspired to further expand and explore their interests.”
This event is hosted by St. Lawrence University’s departments of Biology and Psychology and is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Biology Department at 315-229-5294.
