Leah Williams of the Gilmore Lab gave an invited talk at EMBO | EMBL Symposium: The Organism and its Environment, held at EMBL Heidelberg, Germany from March 1-4, 2020. The title of her talk was “Evolution of immune regulation: structure, activity, and biology of transcription factor NF-kappaB in early metazoans.”

Leah’s research explores the evolutionary origins and molecular mechanisms of immunity in basal marine organisms such as corals and sponges. Her research has been supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and the National Science Foundation.
