Special Seminar: Eike-Roman Hrincius - "Viral pathogenicity: a matter of sugar"
Incursions of new pathogenic viruses into humans from animal reservoirs are occurring with alarming frequency.
Interestingly, not all viral infections result in pathology. Many viruses have adapted well enough to humans that they can undergo robust replication cycles with little to no evidence of immune recognition and responses, or at least no immune responses that are damaging to the host.
We are interested in the molecular mechanisms of immune recognition, host responses, and pathogenesis and focus on the contribution of posttranslational modifications of viral surface proteins and their contribution to viral pathogenicity.
