VitDAL discuss research in public lecture

Posted on November 16th, by Richard Mellanby in Uncategorized. No Comments

Professor Richard Mellanby and Dr Iris Mair from VitDAL delivered a lecture this week in the ‘Let’s talk about health’ public lecture series held at the University of Edinburgh. They were able to discuss how their clinical work in veterinary patients stimulate the lab’s long term interest in understanding more about how vitamin D can modulate the immune response. It was a fantastic opportunity to discuss our recent studies with the public and receive feedback from a diverse audience.
