Congratulations to Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Professor Melissa Lodoen, who has been named the 2018 Dolph O. Adams awardee by the Society for Leukocyte Biology. Her research, which focuses on the role of monocytes and macrophages in host defense during Toxoplasma gondii infection, is in line with the goal of this important award- to recognize an impactful immunologist and leukocyte biologist.
The Dolph O. Adams award is given out annually to an investigator working towards a better understanding of the mechanisms of host defense and inflammation. The award is in honor of Dr. Adams, an outstanding Leukocyte biologist, and is given out to a junior/mid-career faculty or equivalent investigator. Best wishes to Professor Lodoen on this wonderful achievement.
