Our research is focused on the understanding of the mechanisms mediating host resistance to respiratory pathogens, with the goal of developing novel interventions for preventing and treating infectious diseases in humans. We investigate a range of basic aspects of innate and adaptive immune responses to Mycobacteriumtuberculosis and Influenza A virus in mice, from cytokine biology to immune regulation and tissue inflammation in the lungs. To understand the immunological basis of host control of the pathogens in humans, we are also extending our studies to examine the interplays betweenpathogen and host signalling pathways in human cells and to identify immune correlates of protection in infected human subjects through international collaborations.
