The research interest of this laboratory is to understand how the immune system recognizes virus infections and how this leads to an immune response against infection. We aim to provide new basic knowledge on how the immune system works and interacts with viruses, and how this impacts on the pathogenesis of viral infections. Such work may lead to better understanding of viral diseases and could have implications for future development of improved vaccines, antiviral therapeutics, and diagnostic tools.
The laboratory is composed of 13 people (1 professor, 1 associate professor, 4 postdocs, 4 PhD students, 1 research year student, 1 technician and 1 project manager) who work on closely interrelated projects within the subject above.
