MHWFAC live scientific webinars to launch June 11

Online seminar series to showcase food allergy research

A series of online research seminars will kick off June 11 at 1p.m. with a presentation by Simon Hogan, PhD, the Askwith Research Professor of Food Allergy at Michigan Medicine, on "IL-9 Producing Mast Cell Populations."  

The live, web-based series will feature University of Michigan scientists and others who originally were slated to present at the MHWFAC's June symposium, which has been rescheduled for June 3-4,  2021. (Save the date!) 

Join us via Zoom on June 11 for introductory remarks by James R. Baker, Jr., MD, MHWFAC director, followed by Dr. Hogan's talk plus a Q&A session.  There is no charge to attend the webinar.  Click here to register.
Dr. Hogan has more than 20 years of experience in basic immunology research, concentrating in development of animal model systems to study allergic immunologic processes in health and disease. 
In 2018, he was appointed as the Askwith Research Professor of Food Allergy at the MHWFAC, as well as a tenured professor of the Michigan Medicine Department of Pathology, where he continues to pursue his long-standing research interests in defining underlying immunological processes that predispose and exacerbate allergic reactions.
Please join MHWFAC scientists and your national and international colleagues for this live webinar.  Click here to register.
Additional webinars featuring speakers from the postponed MHWFAC research symposium will be announced shortly.  Registrants for this inaugural online seminar will receive e-mails about future sessions.
