JCCC Seminar Featuring Dr. Michael Oldstone

The Anatomy of Viral Persistence and Lassa Fever Pathogenesis Occurs via the Alpha Dystroglycan Gateway

Michael  Oldstone, M.D.

Presented by:
Michael B.A. Oldstone, M.D.
Professor, Department of Immunology and Microbial Science
The Scripps Research Institute

Dr. Michael Oldstone's lab is interested in understanding the molecular basis of how viruses infect cells, how the immune response aborts viruses, how viruses wrestle control away from the immune system to establish persistent infections, how persistent infection is initiated and maintained and the mechanism of how such infections cause disease. Because viruses have different lifestyles, his studies focus on lessons taught primarily to three negative-strand viruses, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, measles and influenza viruses, and their interactions with the host's immune, nervous and pulmonary system. The laboratory is also involved in prion disease pathogenesis.
