Dr. Dana Philpott University of Toronto, Canada1 Talk
Dana Philpott is Assistant Professor in the Department of Immunology at the University of Toronto. She received his BSc from the University of Calgary and PhD from the University of Toronto. Despite their implication in human disease, the function of Nod1 and Nod2 and the mechanisms of their activation are... read morestill largely unknown. The major focus of her research is to examine the molecular basis of Nod/elictor interaction, the cell biology of the signal transduction pathways and how these proteins are implicated in both innate and adaptive immunity in bacterial infection as well in autoimmune disease.
