Human Innate Immune Defences Against Virus Infection: Interferon Responses

The Hale laboratory is focused on understanding, at the molecular level, how human cells defend themselves against infection, particularly against respiratory viruses such as influenza viruses and SARS-CoV-2. We are interested in mechanisms by which a cell recognises that it is infected by a pathogen and uses the interferon cytokine system to trigger antiviral gene expression and block infection. We seek to exploit knowledge in these areas to identify and understand host factors that contribute to infectious disease susceptibility.
