Guest Lecture presented by CIMI
The Center for Inflammation and Mucosal Immunology cordially invites you to a guest lecture presented by Dr. Ellen Zimmermann entitled ³Crohn¹s Disease: Radiographic Imaging for Detecting Disease Activity and Complications.² The presentation is summarized by Dr. Zimmermann in the following paragraph:
Intestinal inflammation in patients with Crohn¹s disease progresses to tissue fibrosis, leading to significant morbidity. Impacting this natural history is a major goal of therapy, and a non-invasive test for monitoring disease progression is key to understanding the disease pathogenesis and for optimizing therapies. Our studies are a classic example of using basic science to develop technology that enables the leap from clinical need to clinical practice.
The lecture will be held in the Biomedical Science Building, Room JG32 on Tuesday, August 26th at 12:00 p.m.
