Pathology researcher to deliver U. Mich. lecture

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — A University of Michigan medical researcher and administrator who looks at lung diseases at the cellular level will speak as part of the school's Health Science Lecture Series.

Steven Kunkel is scheduled to talk Wednesday evening in the Kahn Auditorium of the Ann Arbor university's biomedical science research building. His lecture is titled "Bugs, inflammation and epigenetics: How pathogens control our immune response."

Kunkel is the senior associate dean for research and pathology research professor at the university's medical school.

Organizers say the series is designed for the general public and the next generation of researchers to meet and hear from the university's leading scientists. It's sponsored by the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute.
