Caltech Associates & Office of Gift Planning Luncheon Series: The Immune System vs. HIV
with Pamela Bjorkman, Centennial Professor of Biology
11:00 a.m. Reception
11:45 a.m. Luncheon and program
It is now more than 30 years after the first AIDS epidemic, and an effective vaccine has continued to evade us—partly due to the virus' quick mutations to antibodies. Pamela Bjorkman, the Centennial Professor of Biology, will talk about the body's complex immune system, share Caltech's advances in understanding the immune response to HIV, and describe how she is working to prevent the infection, at our luncheon in partnership with the Office of Gift Planning.
