I’m a CBS PhD student in the lab of Mark Tompkins studying the viral immunology and vaccinology of influenza virus. My research focuses on novel vaccine platforms and adjuvants in the context of influenza. Specifically, the immunogenicity of influenza peptides and proteins conjugated to TLR agonists is of keen interest. […]
I am a Graduate student in the Department of Infectious diseases. My research interests include the development of viral diagnostics and determining immune responses against highly pathogenic strains of Influenza viruses in different animal models.
My name is Caroline Page and I am from San Diego, California. I worked for a biotechnology company for 2 years before starting my Ph.D. at UGA in Infectious Diseases. I study influenza B and utilize mouse and ferret animal models to better understand host-immune response to contemporary viruses.
Ms. Hughes is the Center for Influenza Disease and Emergence Research (CIDER) coordinator and National Institutes of Health contract coordinator within the Center for Vaccines and Immunology at the College of Veterinary Medicine. She manages the operational activities of the center and is responsible for collecting and organizing required contract […]
The focus on my research is to identify the mechanism of increased disease severity associated with influenza B and pneumococcus coinfection. This is done by identifying different components of the innate immune response; in addition, to the effect of the microbiome on disease severity.
