UCLA scientists including MBIDP alumnus Adewunmi Adelaja and MBI member Alexander Hoffmann have identified six “words” that specific immune cells use to call up immune defense genes. The discovery could serve as a guide to the discovery of words related to other diseases.

The research has been published in the journal Immunity (Cell Press).
