Helen Goodridge, PhD, is an immunologist whose research focuses on neutrophils, macrophages and dendritic cells, which are key players in innate immunity and inflammation. The Goodridge lab is characterizing the mechanisms that regulate the production of these cells (myelopoiesis), the signals that instruct their responses to microbial components and other "danger signals," and the roles of these cells in antimicrobial immunity, inflammatory disease, neurodegenerative disease, cancer and aging.

Many of the physicians who have medical staff privileges to practice medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center are independent physicians, and not employees or agents of the hospital. These independent physicians bill separately for their services. You should contact your physician to determine their status and billing practices.
