Seminars in Investigative Medicine
The medical school will welcome Michael McHeyzer-Williams, PhD to the W.E. Upjohn M.D. Campus on Wednesday, May 1, for the Seminars in Investigative Medicine. Dr. McHeyzer-Williams will present “ReProgramming B cell Memory: One cell at a Time” from noon to 1:00 p.m. in TBL 2 at the W.E. Upjohn M.D. Campus. A free lunch will be available prior to Dr. McHeyzer-Williams' presentation from 11:45 a.m. to noon. The presentation will begin promptly at noon. The event is free and open to the public. This event is accredited for CME and MEDU credit. Dr. McHeyzer-Williams is Ph.D. is Professor in the Department of Immunology and Microbiology at Scripps Research's California Campus. He earned his Ph.D. (Immunology) at The University of Melbourne, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research. Dr. McHeyzer-Williams' area of expertise is in Helper T cells. Helper T cells are the master regulators of adaptive immunity that control the development of antigen-specific B cell immunity. His research seeks to define the cellular and molecular details of the major developmental checkpoints that regulate these cell fate decisions in vivo. His lab has recently extended their studies into the earliest innate immune events that initiate and shape this adaptive immune response. If we can understand the rules that control adaptive immunity, it will be possible to design safe and effective protein sub-unit vaccines. In support of improving patient care, Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team. Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. Number of credits subject to change.
