Project: Antigen and cellular dynamics of influenza infection

Wheatley Group

This project uses recombinant influenza viruses that deliver reporter molecules to track the antigen and immune cell dynamics of influenza infection in mice. We are interested in understanding which cells are being infected, where they traffick and how viral antigens get to draining lymphoid organs after infection.
