Bruce Beutler of University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center - American Immunologist and Geneticist - JCI Giants in Medicine
In this video, Ushma Neill of the Journal of Clinical Investigation speaks with a legend within the field of innate immunity, Dr. Bruce Beutler of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, who is best known for two seminal discoveries: identifying mouse tumor necrosis factor and discovering Toll-like receptor 4, the receptor for lipopolysaccharide. With this discovery, later rewarded with the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, we finally understood how immune cells could recognize and react to bacteria.
