Bring Out Your Dead
Greg Lemke discovered a family of three receptor tyrosine kinases, called TAM receptors, which play a crucial role in telling immune cells how to handle infection from bacteria, viruses and other pathogens, as well as normal cellular debris. Aside from immune function, TAM receptors are involved in the healthy development of the nervous system.
