As a trained B cell immunologist I have a strong interest in understanding how the adaptive immune system functions to help protect its host during infections. However, having recently joined a virology lab that is focused more on the innate immunity side of things, I have become more interested in understanding how the immune system can damage the host during viral infections. I am particularly interested in understanding how we can target both adaptive and innate immune components to help alleviate inflammatory damage caused by viral respiratory infections.
