Novel Mechanisms of Early Defence against Virus Infections

Søren Riis Paludan says: ”In this project, we will explore how the first line of defence against infections is activated following virus infections. We will identify cellular and molecular mechanisms through which cells and tissues sense and respond to viruses. The project may uncover fundamentally new mechanisms through which the immune system mounts the first barrier against infection. This may impact the development of new antiviral therapy and is likely also to uncover mechanisms of importance for other conditions, such as non-viral infections and autoimmune diseases.”
