THE JOHN R. LAMONTAGNE LECTURE SERIES

Mary K. Estes

Our keynote speaker this year will be Dr. Mary Estes. She is a Distinguished Professor of Virology and Microbiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. Her research group studies viruses that infect distinct types of cells (enterocytes, crypt cells, M cells) in the GI tract as probes to learn about the biology, host response and gene expression of these cells. We are using multidisciplinary approaches to probe the structure and molecular biology of GI viruses to understand the basic mechanisms that control virus replication, morphogenesis, virus-host interactions, and pathogenesis.

This event will be rescheduled for the fall. Please check back here for updates!
