Join us for GW Biomedical Cross-disciplinary Seminar Series: Connecting Academic Research & Inquiry Across Disciplines—a series of seminars that will explore a new cross-disciplinary topic each year. For the inaugural year, the focus is "Inflammation in Chronic Disease: Cause, Consequence, or Both?" and will address both the treatment and prevention of chronic inflammatory diseases.

Katherine Chiappinelli, PhD, assistant professor, Department of Microbiology, Immunology, and Tropical Medicine, GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences, will give the first lecture on "Repetitive Elements and the Immune Response in Cancer." She has almost a decade's worth of experience working in molecular biology, where she specializes in cancer epigenetics.

Organized by the Department of Pharmacology & Physiology and the Office of Integrative Medicine and Health, the seminar series is supported by departmental funding and the generosity of Ellen J. LaBelle, MD `74, RESD '78, associate clinical professor of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and John Pan, MD '70, RESD '74. clinical professor, Department of Clinical Research and Leadership, and founding medical director, Office of Integrative Medicine and Health.
