Dr. Lindsey Crawford, an assistant professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL), is making significant strides in understanding how viruses affect our immune system. 

Crawford will share her research and insight on processes that affect immune systems at ߲ݴý University’s annual Fetzer Lecture on Thursday, April 4. 

As a member of the Nebraska Center for Virology and the Nebraska Center for Integrated Biomolecular Communication, Dr. Crawford brings a wealth of expertise to her research.

Her work at the Crawford lab is dedicated to understanding how viruses infect stem cells. Her team hopes to address fundamental questions at the intersection of virology, immunology, and stem cell biology.

Dr. Crawford's research not only sheds light on how viruses manipulate host cells but also holds promise for developing targeted therapies against viral infections and advancing our understanding of immune system function. 

The lecture begins at 7 p.m. in Olin B Lecture Hall and is free and open to the public.

The Amos Fetzer and Alice Fetzer Memorial Lecture was established by Dr. W.R. Fetzer (’17) in memory of his parents. The lectureship is designed to bring to campus distinguished scholars in science, math, computer science, and the environment.
