Science thrives on cooperation and war will only keep us from progress

In 2018 I was invited to Moscow State University to receive an award for the contribution of my laboratory in the field of immunology. I was particularly honored that my team was recognized by Russian scientists because of a famous Russian immunologist named Élie Metchnikoff.

He’s as well known in my field as Bono is in rock music. Metchnikoff is one of the founding scientists in immunology and discovered a key type of cell in the immune system called macrophages, which is a major focus of my lab’s work. Macrophages wreak havoc on many diseases, including Covid-19. Metchnikoff was so famous that he is even mentioned in James Joyce’s Ulysses: “Metchnikoff vaccinated great apes.”
