Narcolepsy, and Allergies, and AIDS! Oh my!

This week on Brains and Bourbon, we talk immunology with Mary Cavanagh, who explains how specialized cells recognize self v. non-self to keep the body safe, and how loss of that recognition can lead to a whole host of problems. 

Dr. Cavanagh is a postdoc in Jorg Goronzy’s lab here at Stanford, as well as a frequent contributor to the Neuroblog. 

Brains & Bourbon airs every Wednesday at 1pm on 90.1FM KZSU, which can be streamed here: http://kzsulive.stanford.edu/
