About Dr. ALYSON Kelvin
The Research Program
Influenza viruses continually circulate in the human population. The biggest problem for public health efforts is managing seasonal outbreaks requiring yearly vaccine formulation.
The current focus of my research program is understanding how the host responds to its first influenza virus infection and the subsequent host immune refinement throughout seasonal virus re-emergence. Understanding these mechanisms will be key to the development of the next generation of more efficacious influenza vaccines.
project 1: Influenza Immune Imprinting and Preimmunity
project 2: Influenza Vaccination Mechanisms - The Search for a Universal Vaccine
project 3: Emerging Viruses and the host-pathogen interaction
I have published 36 peer review manuscripts in top journals such as Science, Nature Immunology, PLOS Pathogens, Journal of Virology.
