Biography

Polly Matzinger has worked as a bartender, carpenter, jazz musician, playboy bunny, and dog trainer. She is currently chief of the ghost lab and the section on T-Cell Tolerance and Memory. She worried  for years that the dominant model of immunity does not explain a wealth of accumulated data and suggested an alternative, the Danger model, which suggests that the  immune system is far less concerned with things that are foreign than with those that do damage. This model, whose two major tenets z most  of what the immune  system seems to do right, as well as most of what it appears to do wrong, covering  areas as transplantation,autoimmunity, and the   immunobiology of tumors. The model has been the subject of a BBC "horizon" film and was featured in three other films about immunity, as well as countless articles in both the scientific and the lay press. In 2013, her section was assigned to the Laboratory of Immunogenetics.
