Boston University School of Medicine will host The Gijs van Seventer Lecture in Immunology on Wednesday, October 10, 2007 at noon. The lecture titled, “Is Negative Regulation the Key to Controlling Autoimmunity?” will be presented by Dr. Jeffrey A. Bluestone from the University of California, San Francisco. The lecture will take place in the Keefer Auditorium, 80 East Concord Street, Boston.
As one of the world’s leading experts on why the body’s immune system rejects or tolerates its own tissues, Bluestone has pioneered the development of new therapies to “re-tune” the immune response, reducing harmful autoimmune reactions as well as immune reactions against transplanted tissues and cells.
