Speaker bio: Dr. Craig Jenne
Dr. Jenne is an associate professor in the Department of Microbiology, Immunology and Infectious Diseases and the department of Critical Care Medicine at the University of Calgary and is the Canada Research Chair in Imaging Approaches Towards Studying Infections.
Dr. Jenne’s lab uses the technique of intravital microscopy to study the early innate immune and inflammatory responses to viral and bacterial infections in an effort to understand how interactions between immune cells and pathogens trigger blood clotting (and subsequent tissue damage) and how activation of the coagulation system can in turn support the host immune response. This area of study has provided a foundation to evaluate how anti-platelet drugs and anti-coagulants may be harnessed to modulate inflammation and minimize tissue pathology following infection with bacterial and viral pathogens including influenza A virus and SARS-CoV-2.
