Dr. Zigmond at Neuroimmunology event

Neuroimmunology is a new, Investigator-initiated CBHI Study Group. The group will meet monthly alternating between the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine campus (Robbins E646) and the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute.  

The format of these meetings is fluid - as are the dates. In the first meeting Richard Zigmond Ph.D. discussed the role of macrophages and neutrophils in the responses of neurons to injury.  Subsequent meetings will have one or two speakers. Meetings will be at 1 p.m. on the last Wednesday of the month. Lunch will be provided. 

All CBHI investigators are welcome to attend meetings of this study group. For more information, or to sign up to give a talk, contact Tara DeSilva Ph.D. at or you can always contact us at
