CVR is honoured to have Janko Nikolich-Zugich, MD, Ph.D. present at the first seminar for 2014
Professor Nikolich-Zugich is Professor and Head, Department of Immunobiology and Co-Director, Arizona Center on Aging and Bowman Professor in Medical Research.
His laboratory is interested in the biology of T lymphocytes, particularly of CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL)  in health, infection and aging.  Their studies are performed in the context of the relationship between immune system and microorganisms (acute and persistent pathogens and normal flora) over the lifespan of the organism, with particular emphasis upon the age-related defects in immunity and defects in long-term homeostasis of the immune system.
