Dermody Lab

Studying the molecular pathogenesis of mammalian reovirus.

Hand Lab

Studying immune cells of the intestine and how they respond to the first interactions with colonizing microorganisms.

Kane Lab

Researching genetic and immunological basis for protective antiviral immune responses, as well as the molecular details underlying the direct inhibition of retroviral replication by restriction factors.

Lin Lab

Focusing on the immune factors that control Mycobacterium tuberculosis  (Mtb) infection to improve vaccine and treatment efforts.

McElroy Lab

A lab group specializing in the study of viral hemorrhagic fevers including Rift Valley fever virus and Crimean Congo hemorrhagic fever virus.
