Janko Nikolich-Zugich, Professor and Head of the University of Arizona's Department of Immunobiology, explores how and why our immune systems become less effective as we get older. Janko suggests that many of the diseases associated with aging are closely linked to our immune responses to infections. Professor Nikolich-Zugich is working to develop ways not just to protect but also to boost and rejuvenate our immune systems across our lifespans.
