Robert P. Schleimer , PhD FAAAAI

  1. Discuss that bitter and sweet taste receptors are present in multiple anatomic compartments and can serve as innate immune system sentinels
  2. Discuss the multiple roles that epithelial cells in the skin serve in host defense and regulators of inflammation
  3. Discuss that epithelial cells in the lung produce many secreted molecules that regulate innate and adaptive immune responses
