Project Description

Innate Immunity researchers often have a need to summarize their work to other scientists, funding parties, and the public. This video was created to communicate widely, promoting awareness about the important role of macrophage heterogeneity in health and disease, as well as translating years of research surrounding these cells and their various ontogenies and functions. The animation will be used on the Innate Immunity Research Network’s website to educate about recent discoveries surrounding macrophages.
