We talk with Carlos Brito, a graduate student in the Kuhn lab at Purdue University, who studies flaviviruses, alphaviruses and coronaviruses.
We talk with Dr. Ziyad Al-Aly, MD, FASN, an assistant professor and clinical epidemiologist, about his work examining the substantial and systemic disease associated with 'long COVID'.
We talk with Dr. Sonam Verma, a postdoctoral researcher, about her work examining the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on the placenta and the potential for increased risk for adverse pregnancy outcomes with COVID-19.
LMtV Episode 27: ‘Big and juicy’ draining lymph nodes and immune responses following COVID vaccination
We talk with Dr. Ali Ellebedy, an associate professor of Pathology and Immunology, about work in his lab to examine immune responses in draining lymph nodes of the arm pit following vaccination with mRNA-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccines using human volunteer-derived samples obtained through ultrasound-guided fine needle aspiration.
We talk with Dr. Sebastien Felt, a postdoctoral researcher, about his work to identify virus and host factors that regulate the generation of defective viral genomes (DVGs) of respiratory syncytial virus, a virus that causes significant respiratory disease in children.
We talk with Dr. Jeannie Kelly, an assistant professor, about her work examining the COVID-19 infection rate of pregnant women in Labor and Delivery, the high risk of pregnancy for severe COVID-19 disease, and the benefit of COVID-19 vaccination for both mothers and babies in utero and after birth.
We talk with Dr. Matthew Kelly, an Assistant Professor, about his work examining the role of the respiratory microbiome in the susceptibility of kids to COVID-19.
We talk with Dr. Hinissan Pascaline Kohio, a postdoctoral research associate in the Ding lab at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis about her work studying rotavirus, an enteric pathogen in young children.
We talk with Dr. Adam Bailey, a clinical pathology fellow, and Sasha Dmytrenko, an MSTP student, about their work investigating extra-pulmonary effects of COVID-19, specifically on the heart.
We talk with Dr. Sharmila Nair, a staff scientist, about her work investigating how Zika virus might be used to target a fatal human cancer, Glioblastoma multiforme.
We talk with Dr. Tristan Jordan, a postdoctoral scholar, about his work using a CRISPR screen and proteomics of the viral replication complex to identity potential drug targets for SARS-CoV-2.
We talk with Dr. Rachel Presti, an associate professor, about her work with clinical trials to examine how well different drugs, therapies, and vaccines work to prevent and treat COVID-19.
We talk with Dr. Brett Case, a postdoctoral researcher, about his work identifying and characterizing numerous monoclonal antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.
We talk with Dr. Sigrid Gouma, a postdoctoral researcher, who has been examining antibody responses during SARS-CoV-2 infection to determine the impact of COVID-19 on specific populations such as pregnant women and to prevent transmission from those with asymptomatic infection.
We talk with Dr. Laura VanBlargen, a staff scientist, about her work to develop and characterize new monoclonal antibody-based therapies for SARS-CoV-2.
We talk with Dr. Sarah Leist, a postdoctoral researcher, about her work generating a mouse-adapted SARS-CoV-2 which will be vital to understand host determinants of SARS-CoV-2 infection and pathogenesis.
We talk with Dr. Yi-Chieh (EJ) Perng, a postdoctoral scholar, about his research to discover new antiviral drugs for SARS-CoV-2 and his outreach efforts discussing how to protect yourself and your community during the COVID-19 pandemic by wearing a mask.
