Schlesingersmall-250x394.jpgThe UGA Voices from the Vanguard 2016 series concludes as Sarah J. Schlesinger tells how novel cells that were first spotted under a microscope in the 1970s have since been recognized as sentinels, sensors and “conductors of the immune symphony.”  That’s how the 2011 Nobel Prize committee described dendritic cells, which have enabled a wealth of insights into the development of drugs and vaccines, including those aimed at preventing AIDS. Schlesinger's presentation is titled “Dendritic Cells, HIV Vaccines and the Nobel Prize: An Amazing Adventure."
