Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • evaluate the molecular and cellular mechanisms of macrophage-mediated immune responses to pathogens
  • contrast the outcomes of pathogen recognition in different cellular locations (e.g. cytoplasm versus plasma membrane)
