The keynote speaker is Dr. Max Dale Cooper, an immunologist and professor of pathology at Emory University in the Winship Cancer Institute.

Cooper is a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar and winner of the 2019 Albert Lasker Basic Medical Research Award, along with his colleague Dr. Jacques Miller, for their discovery of the two distinct classes of lymphocytes, B and T cells. This discovery launched the course of modern immunology.

Cooper will speak on his work in a presentation titled “Evolution of Our Immune System,” which can be livestreamed beginning at 1 p.m. April 1.

“It is an honor and privilege to be hosting Dr. Cooper as our GRD keynote speaker. Dr. Cooper is a pioneer in the field of immunology and I look forward to his presentation,” said Dr. Jennifer Sullivan, dean of The Graduate School.
