Dr. Misumi’s research focuses on T cells that confer defense against virus infections. His lab uses mouse models with viruses such as LCMV and HAV to identify key factors that improve T cell responses and limit virus infections that cause severe disease. Results from these studies are important for understanding how virus-specific T cells are generated and improving vaccines or immunotherapies for people.
