This talk was presented by Dr. David Koelle, a guest speaker from the University of Washington, Center for Innate Immunity and Immune Disease. Dr. Koelle studies virology and immunology, along with viral oncogenesis, tumor immunotherapy, practical vaccinology issues such as adjuvants and delivery systems, and immune-mediated adverse drug reactions. The core skill in his lab is the refined dissection of the human T-cell response to large-genome pathogens, with a newer focus on T-cell receptor expression and biology. His lab focuses on HSV-1, HSV-2, and VZV, in areas ranging from candidate vaccine discovery to pre-clinical models to immunogenicity testing for clinical trials.
