Project: Investigating How Immune Cells Respond to Influenza Virus

Grant(s): Senior-Research-Training-Fellowship

A subset of cells in the immune system, called CD8 T lymphocytes, are essential for killing cells infected with the flu virus. Yet, understanding how these cells respond to the influenza virus and protect individuals from repeat infections are limited. In this project, Dr. Carrette and team will investigate the mechanisms involved in controlling the generation of memory CD8 T lymphocyte pool during an influenza infection, with the ultimate goal to discover new targets to improve vaccine strategies.
