The seminar by Prof. Du Pasquier

(Institut de Zoologie, Université de Bâle, Suisse)

Yesterday, I went to the opening seminar of Philosophy & Immunology for 2012-2013. The speaker was Prof. Louis Du Pasquier of University of Basel. The title of his seminar was "Evolution des systèmes immunitaires chez les Métazoaires : analogies et homologies".
This seminar series was initiated by young philosophers and scientists to promote interactions between philosophers and scientists or philosophically-minded scientists. Now it enters into the third year. I always enjoy discussions among participants, probably because I myself look for a global view of the immune system and its functioning.
