Our immune system has evolved to deal with a host of challenges, yet the microbes that can infect us have also developed ways to evade and manipulate host immunity. As we learn more about the complex interplay between immunology and the microbes that live in and on us, we are realising the potential we have to develop novel medicines and therapies to heal ourselves.

Watch the Q&A:

Sheena Cruickshank is an immunologist and Professor in Biomedical Sciences and Public Engagement at the University of Manchester. She researches how immune responses of the gut are started as a result of infection and/or inflammation. Sheena is an award-winning science communicator.

This talk and Q&A was filmed in the Ri on 23 May 2019.
