New discovery of “Type 2 innate lymphocytes” in the Meninges

Jony Kipnis, Chair of Neuroscience and PSTG preceptor and researcher Sachin Gadini was featured in the article “Unknown Solders: UVA Discovers Powerful Defenders of the Brain,” of UVA Today for his lab’s discovery last year that the brain and immune system are directly connected via vessels long thought not to exist.

The Pharmacology Department would like to congratulate Dr. Kipnis and his lab for the discovery of this unexpected link and, as UVA Today put it “game-changing” accomplishment!
