The first lecture in the UA Department of Medicine's Research Seminar Series filled the seats on Sept. 8 to hear department Chair Monica Kraft, MD, and research partner Julie Ledford, PhD, discuss their work on "Surfactant Protein-A (SP-A) & Asthma: From Basic Science to Translational Research."

A line of viewers stretched across the back of the Chase Bank Auditorium (UAHS Room 8403), where their talk was held.
