Description of Project:
We are investigating the role of naturally occurring antibodies on influenza virus that has been modified to express targets for these antibodies. We are looking into whether or not these antibodies can neutralize said modified influenza and increase uptake by and presentation of virus to immune cells. Our ultimate aim is to improve response to influenza vaccines.
