"Immune Adaptations During Chronic Infections"

Elina Zuniga, PhD / University of California, San Diego


Our laboratory studies cellular and molecular aspects of immune responses during acute and chronic viral infections to determine general principles of antiviral immunity, immune-evasion, persistence and pathogenesis. The ultimate goal is to generate fundamental knowledge on immune-regulation that could help modulating immune responses to prevent or treat infectious diseases and may also have implications for other immune-related illnesses. My seminar will focus on host and microbe adaptations that impact innate responses (i.e. type I interferons) during acute and chronic viral infections.
