Welcome to the Dewhurst Lab

Our laboratory's major research goals include: 

  1. The development and improvement of vaccine approaches for influenza virus, with emphasis on live-attenuated influenza vaccines (LAIV)s and the use of LAIV as a vaccine-delivery platform for other respiratory viral pathogens, including SARS-CoV-2;
  2. Understanding innate host immune response to respiratory viral pathogens, including influenza and live-attenuated influenza virus vaccines (LAIV), as well as SARS-CoV-2
  3. The development of small molecule therapeutics for viral pathogens (with emphasis most recently on HIV and SARS-CoV-2)
