The focus of the Lund lab is on elucidating the basic mechanisms of immunity in the context of virus infection. Specifically, we use a mouse model to study how regulatory T-cells affect the anti-viral immune responses to genital HSV-2, influenza, and West Nile virus. Additionally, we are investigating the immune correlates of protection from HIV infection using a cohort of exposed seronegative individuals, as well as the potential immune modulatory effects of using pre-exposure prophylaxis in protection from HIV acquisition. Overall, we hope that our studies will lead to improved clinical interventions for virus infections of public health importance.
