Dr. Alexander Rudensky is an internationally acclaimed scientist and is considered the world’s leading authority on a subset of blood cells that are critical for the regulation of the body’s response to pathogens. The study of these cells, known as regulatory T cells, has provided important insights into the fundamental biology of the immune system. Recent data indicate that targeted manipulation of these cells represent a novel and important therapeutic tool that will have far-ranging implications for human health. Rudensky will...
