Title: "Prenatal origins of neurodevelopmental dysfunction: viruses, microbes, microglia, and IL-17."

Speaker: Adrienne M. Antonson, Assistant Professor, Department of Animal Sciences, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Exposure to inflammation during critical developmental windows can disrupt neural circuitry formation and function, increasing the risk of neurodevelopmental disorders. Using maternal viral infection, Dr. Antonson's lab investigates how microbial, immune, and microglial signaling might underlie the etiologies of these disorders.
