I am interested in studying the immune response in pig dendritic cells to the porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus. I will determine the effects that variation in specific viral genes have on the immune response to PRRSV. Further elucidating the roles of the genes, in addition to studying the overall pathogenesis, will aid in the development of a vaccine candidate.
