What destroys, can heal.
Thu 23 March 2017, 18:00 – 19:00 GMT
Our body is a battlefield.
From viruses to sharp objects, we are exposed to all kinds of dangers on a daily basis. Just like in a battlefield, in our body there are key players that carry on all kinds of tasks: those that will launch long-range attacks, the first line of defence and those the care for the injured. We now know that these tasks can be carried out by one same type of cells: macrophages.
This fast-paced, engaging talk will take us through why macrophages can both destroy and heal, how that happens and what are the consequences. Expect sensors, neon lights and some (hopefully fun) jokes.
