Colloquium: Banner on cytokines’ role linking the immune system to the nervous system

Dr. Lisa Banner

This week the Biology Colloquium seminar series features CSUN Associate Professor of Biology Lisa Banner. Dr. Banner studies how a class of molecules called cytokines link the immune system and the nervous system — particularly in responses to systematic stress. Her seminar "Examining the role of immune cytokines in the prediabetic brain: A neuroimmune connection" will discuss recent research in her lab.

Because CSUN has suspended large in-person meetings to help slow the transmission of the novel coronavirus, this week’s Colloquium will be presented by videoconference on the Zoom service. You can watch the presentation on Friday at 2pm via this meeting link, with passcode Biology490. (Following the link may prompt the installation of the Zoom app in order to display video.)
