My laboratory studies respiratory immunology under homeostasis and disease conditions.
The long-term goals of the laboratory are to develop novel ideas and methods for the induction of strong respiratory antiviral and anti-tumor immunity, and to target host immune regulatory networks for the control of acute and/or chronic disease (such as long COVID-19 symptom) development following respiratory viral infections including influenza, SARS-CoV-2 and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). These research areas are of clinical relevance and may be translatable in the identification of novel preventive and therapeutic approaches.
