Vaccine and Infectious Disease Division

Viral Infections

Prevention strategies and therapeutic options for many viruses are currently inadequate for the successful reduction of disease prevalence, especially in resource-poor settings. VIDD is home to one of the world’s largest vaccine programs that includes vaccine development and clinical trial studies. Several VIDD disciplines, such as virology, epidemiology and statistics, work in concert with the common goal of curbing viral infection.

Interest in describing the quantitative and dynamical features of human pathogens and immune responses. Most of work to-date is on the pathogenesis of HSV-2 infection but also interested in applying models to optimize viral eradication startegies, and to use models to capture kinetic features of the human microbiome.
