JCCC SeminarDr. Jeffrey Ravetch

Presented by:
Jeffrey Ravetch, M.D., Ph.D.
Theresa and Eugene Lang Professor
Leonard Wagner Laboratory of Molecular Genetics and Immunology
The Rockefeller University

Dr. Ravetch dissects the cellular and molecular mechanisms that govern the generation of antibody specificity and the translation of that specificity into cellular responses. By identifying the genetic components that cause immune system cells to respond to specific antibodies, Dr. Ravetch hopes to gain a better understanding of how a functioning immune system protects organisms from invaders, and how a dysfunctional immune system attacks the body’s own tissues.
