Professorial Inaugural Lecture: Professor Joseph Jackson


How the environment affects the immune system

Join us for the inaugural lecture of Professor Joseph Jackson.


The immune system is a key determinant of individual health, but evolved to function in a natural environment - rather than in the artificial environments we inhabit today. Furthermore, most of what is known about immunology derives from unnatural laboratory models that do not allow us to study the effect of realistic environmental variation.  Studies in naturally-occurring vertebrates are helping us to understand how immunity is adapted to respond to the natural environment. This knowledge may, in turn, help us tailor our environments and lifestyles (or those of other animals of interest) in ways that lead to a healthier immune system.

Lecture will be followed by a canapé and wine reception in the Salford Museum and Art Gallery.

If you have any special dietary or access requirements please let the University Events team know.
