Innovations with Ed Begley Jr. announced today that they will feature La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology in an upcoming episode, airing second quarter 2016 via Discovery Channel. Dates and show times TBA.
Founded in 1988, the La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (LJI) is one of only a few non-profit biomedical research institutes in the world focused on understanding the immune response to infectious agents and cancer and on advancing progress toward the prevention, treatment and cure of immune system diseases.
This segment of Innovations will focus on LJI’s research, and will educate audiences on its dedication to increasing knowledge and improving human health through studies of the immune system. It will also inform on LJI’s essential purpose to expand the understanding of how the immune system works and to discover the causes of immune system disorders.
“We are very excited to share our story with the Innovations viewers,” said Mitchell Kronenberg, Ph.D., president and chief scientific officer of the La Jolla Institute. “Learning how to tap into the immune system’s power to enhance human health will change the landscape of modern medicine, because there is no biomedical discipline that has greater implications for human health.”
“The knowledge gained through biomedical research performed by LJI can, in turn lead to the prevention, treatment and cure of a wide range of human diseases,” said Michele Nehls, Producer for the series. “We look forward to sharing this vital information with our viewers.”
