Hi, I’m Stefanie Valbon a PhD student with a passion to talk about science. This blog is designed to share with you some of our amazing built-in mechanisms of defense against infection and cancer. Trust me, immunology does not need to be complicated. Check out my ImmunoThoughts posts to learn how!
No prior knowledge, but a curious mind, is required!
“The vision that we all have something to learn and something to share has been a driving force during my journey thus far. The ImmunoThoughts Blog is my way to advocate for a community in which scientific concepts are shared in an accessible way.”
