The topics covered include the origin of macrophages and the journey from the myeloid stem cell in the bone marrow to the macrophage in tissues; macrophages and dendritic cells in the progression of atherosclerosis; the role of lymph node sinus macrophages in host defense; the heterogeneity of myeloid-derived suppressor cells in human cancers; regulation of immune responses by neutrophils; and the mechanism of NLRP3 inflammasome activation.
