Seminar-Unwrapping the enigma - understanding the mechanisms of eosinophil recruitment
presents a seminar by:
Abstract: Present in good health and bad, eosinophils have been with us throughout our evolution and development. Despite this, we have lacked the tools to directly observe eosinophils in action in vivo. We recently developed an eosinophil-specific fluorescent reporter mouse and using intravital microscopy, we have now directly examined eosinophils in healthy tissue and during allergic inflammation. This talk will highlight how we have used this new tool to expand our understanding of the role of focal adhesion kinase (FAK) in eosinophil trafficking.
