    Biography
      Dr Andrew Oberst graduated from Amherst College in 2001. He pursued his graduate studies in Europe, in a collaborative program between the Universities of Rome and Paris, receiving his Doctorate in 2006.

      Andrew completed his postdoctoral training at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, and in 2012 he joined the University of Washington's Department of Immunology as an Assistant Professor.

      Dr Oberst's research focuses on understanding the pathways of programmed cell death, and how different forms of cell death are perceived by the immune system.


    Abstract:

    Review the similarities and differences between apoptosis and necroptosis, with an introduction to new tools developed to activate effectors of necroptosis.
