Women & Science: Fireside Chat

Special Event
Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.


Maiken Scott, Behavioral Health Reporter at WHYY will discuss allergies and your immune system with Philippa Marrack, Ph.D., Chair, Biomedical Research Department and Distinguished Professor at National Jewish Health. The conversation will focus on the body’s immune response, or how your body recognizes and defends itself against bacteria, viruses and substances that appear foreign and harmful.

In this program, you will learn:

  • How does your body’s immune response work?
  • The X chromosome: Why do women get certain autoimmune diseases more than men?
  • Is our genetic makeup the culprit?
