Current Research Description

An integrative physiological approach is used to study interactions among the nervous, endocrine and immune systems.  Animal models of experiment viral infections (including influenza, herpes simplex and coxsackie viruses) have been adapted to study the effect of neuroendocrine responses on cytokine and chemokine gene expression.  In addition, the effects of age and stress on gene expression during infection and wound healing are currently being studied in humans and in animal models.
