Professional Profile

Equine influenza is the leading cause of respiratory disease in Kentucky and the world. My major interest is to study the innate immune responses to the influenza virus and herpes virus. I am also interested in the development of vaccines for influenza and herpes virus. I am involved in infectious disease control and surveillance both nationally and internationally.
