Project description

RSV and influenza viruses are important human pathogens. Our lab developed a novel RSV vaccine candidate and a broadly protective influenza vaccine. These vaccines elicit non neutralizing protection against these viruses. We will generate recombinant influenza and RSV viruses to study the dynamics of these viruses in the context of such so called infection permissive vaccines.
