Exploring the worlds within us
From the induction of oral tolerance to food and bacterial antigens, through the dynamics of monocytes in the atherosclerotic vessels, to the neutrophils extravasating into the inflamed tissues, the immune system plays a pivotal role in human health and disease. Microscopy offers a unique opportunity to study life in the correct anatomical context. Advances in imaging provide a window into dynamic processes that, combined with other techniques, enable us to create a more complete picture of the immune system in action. In this talk, I will share how new imaging technologies help the researchers at the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology to move towards our goal of ‘life without disease’.
