AUTOIMMUNITY: WHEN YOUR BODY TURNS ON YOU
Featuring: Dr. Michael Croft

Join us for a social gathering amongst scientists, friends and influencers, and learn about the latest advances in autoimmune disease research.

For reasons not yet understood, autoimmune disorders are on the rise, from type 1 diabetes and multiple sclerosis to lupus and rheumatoid arthritis. The numbers are staggering: 1 in 12 Americans and 1 in 9 women will develop an autoimmune disorder. Most autoimmune diseases are caused when malfunctioning T cells start attacking the body's own tissues. La Jolla Institute Professor Dr. Michael Croft, one of the world's foremost experts on T cell biology, will discuss the latest insights into what happens when the immune system goes rogue and ongoing efforts to treat and prevent autoimmunity.

La Jolla Institute’s public event series Life Without Disease provides the community with an opportunity to hear about the latest advances in immune research and learn first-hand about the exciting research conducted at the Institute. The lectures are delivered by prominent leaders in their field and are offered three times a year.
