The primary research focus for Matthew Vogt, MD, PhD relates to common respiratory viruses and the mechanisms that allow some to cause severe disease.  He has a particular interest in enterovirus D68.  This virus can cause a polio-like paralyzing illness called acute flaccid myelitis in patients, even though in most cases it only causes the common cold.  His laboratory group also studies how antibodies can protect against severe infection, and is involved in developing antibodies for use in humans with enterovirus D68 infection.
