We study the intricate interactions between respiratory viruses, such as parainfluenza and respiratory synctial virus, and the lung innate immune system. We seek to identify viral and cellular factors that drive the development of effective antiviral responses able to control virus replication and dissemination. Our long-term goals are to identify potent viral molecular motifs that trigger the host immune response and to harnness them as adjuvants for vaccination. We are also interested in discovering new determinants of virus pathogenesis that could be targeted to minimize acute and chronic post-viral disease.
