Neuroimmune System 101: A primer on how the nervous and immune systems work together
March 19, 2020
SRNA is joined by Dr. Kyle Blackburn and Dr. Cynthia Wang for a podcast on “Neuroimmune System 101: A primer on how the nervous and immune systems work together.” The podcast begins with an overview of the nervous and immune systems and how they relate in the context of rare neuroimmune disorders. The experts discuss COVID-19 (coronavirus) in relation to the immune systems of people with rare neuroimmune disorders. They then answer questions on different ways in which the immune system is activated and how different triggers for the immune system may affect someone with an existing rare neuroimmune disorder. Finally, the experts, who are both former James T. Lubin Fellows, share their research and describe how to participate.
