NEMA 250-Ioannis Eleftherianos, The George Washington University

Ioannis Eleftherianos
1471 Boyce Hall, UC Riverside

The Department of Nematology's weekly NEMA 250 seminar series is presented this week by:

Ioannis Eleftherianos, Associate Professor of Molecular Biology, The George Washington University 

Seminar Title: "The Anti-Nematode Defense in Insects: A paradigm for Innate Immunity"

Dr. Eleftherianos obtained his PhD in Insect Molecular Biology (University of Bath, UK) and performed postdoctoral research in Insect Immunology (University of Strasbourg, France). Currently at George Washington University (Washington DC), his lab uses Drosophila,the entomopathogenic nematode Heterorhabditis, and its symbiotic bacterium Photorhabdus to investigate the molecular and evolutionary basis of insect immunity, bacterial symbiosis/pathogenicity and nematode parasitism, and to understand the basic principles of the complex interactions between these important biological processes.
