  1. CIHMID URE students presenting their research, summer 2021

    CIHMID/CCFI Joint Symposium

    REGISTER HERE: cornell.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form  CIHMID, and the Cornell Center For Immunology (CCFI) will present a joint research symposium, open to the Cornell community. And despite the uncertainty surrounding Covid, and the Omicron variant specifically, CIHMID and CCFI are confident our joint symposium will be safe, and accessible for all attendees. As of right now our plan is to […]

    Deborah Fowell

    We are actively engaged in defining the signals that enable effector T cells to ‘find’ areas of infection and damage within inflamed tissues. We utilize intravital multiphoton microscopy and optogenetic tools to visualize and manipulate effector CD4+ T cells in situ. These approaches have revealed extrinsic[...]
  3. Gerlinde Van de Walle

    With a dual focus on viral pathogenesis and stem cell biology, the objective of Dr. Gerlinde Van de Walle’s research is to open up new avenues towards therapeutic intervention by better understanding the pathogenesis of diseases important to veterinary and human medicine. To this end,[...]
  4. Tobias Dörr lab

    My group studies cell envelope stress responses of Gram-negative pathogens. We are defining regulatory pathways and functional networks of enzymes involved in cell wall degradation, modification and synthesis as well as factors required for upholding outer membrane barrier function. We seek to understand these processes to gain insight into the mechanistic underpinnings of cell growth […]

  5. Hector Aguilar-Carreno lab

    The main focus of our research program is to elucidate key mechanistic components in enveloped viruses and their host cells that: 1) mediate viral entry into cells, 2) elicit cell immune responses, and 3) mediate viral egress from cells. These studies are leading to the development of diagnostic tools, new techniques, antiviral agents, and vaccines. […]

    Whittaker lab: Coronaviruses and Musteloidea

    The Whittaker lab has a new paper out in mBio that looks deeper into coronaviruses and their relationship to the superfamily Musteloidea. PAPER:  https://mbio.asm.org/content/12/1/e02873-20

  8. Molecular dialogue between intestinal stem cells and microbiota

    The intestinal epithelium faces unique challenges as it is constantly exposed to the passage of ingested material including food, bacteria and xenobiotics. To maintain tissue function, the intestinal epithelium is undergoing continuous renewal mediated by intestinal stem cells (ISCs). ISC proliferation and differentiation are constantly adapted both to the microbes present and to the gut […]

  9. Mechanisms of Virus-Host Interactions

    The main focus of our research program is to elucidate key mechanistic components in enveloped viruses and their target host cells that: 1] mediate viral entry into cells, 2] elicit cell immune responses, and 3] mediate viral egress from cells. Within our lab, these studies lead to the design, development, and testing of novel antiviral agents […]

  10. Development of broadly neutralizing antibodies to influenza

    Development of broadly neutralizing antibodies to influenza using a novel bacterial outer membrane vesicle platform: The Leifer and Putnam labs have an ongoing collaboration to use innovative engineering techniques develop, test, and understand the underlying immunological mechanisms of new vaccine adjuvant bacterial outer membrane vesicle platforms. We are interested in postdoctoral candidates proposing to take […]
