The Impact of Aging on Immune Responses.

Aging has a dramatic impact on the immune response to both infection and vaccination. Our laboratory is interested in determining the specific immune cell types impacted by aging and the mechanisms responsible for these changes. We have focused on CD4 T cells, which are significantly impacted by aging, especially with regards to their ability to differentiate into follicular helper T cells. We are also interested in the innate immune response to viral respiratory infections and how aging impacts the initial response to infections such as influenza.
