My project is to study how the nervous system regulates innate immune response in response to pathogen infection. I have been often asked this question: the innate immunity of c elegans is too simple, the mammalian immune response are more complicated (including adaptive immune response), how can you translate your findings obtained in c elegans to human research? When you applied your findings found in c elegans, the things are totally different in humans. what is the point to study the innate immunity in c elegans?
Could anyone give me some thoughts/advice to answer such questions?
