Although there are many immune system responses against viral infections, Natural Killer (NK) cells are unique because of their rapid anti-viral responses to infections in comparison to other immune cells. My research is focusing on identifying and defining the involvement of natural killer (NK) cells during chronic viral infections. We are integrating multiple disciplines to investigate what NK cells can do during chronic viral infection and to find new insights for treatment.
