John Cambier, Distinguished Professor and Chair, Integrated Department of Immunology, School of Medicine, graduate program in reproductive sciences, recently was recognized with the “Lifetime Faculty Achievement Award” at the National Jewish Health faculty awards dinner.
Cambier is one of nine people who have received the award. Cambier’s work involves transduction and integration of regulatory signals in lymphoid cells in part because aberrancies in these mechanisms may lead to autoimmunity and immunodeficiency. He is considered a leading authority on how immune cells interpret environmental queues during immune and inflammatory responses, Cambier has advanced medical science’s understanding of how the body’s immune system avoids autoimmunity. More on his research focus is detailed online.
He holds the Ida & Cecil Green Professorship of Cell Biology endowed chair.
