“My main research area is primary human cells isolations, differentiation and culture as well as DENV infections mainly related with DHIPC ongoing project. Also coordinate different projects in the lab by interacting with all the investigators in the team and providing technical and administrative support.”

“My main role is to manage the multi-investigator project DHIPC, organize conference calls and coordinate all the needs for the different groups involved. I act as the liaison between the investigators and the administrative and financial offices both at ISMMS and the NIH. I also manage all the other projects of Dr. Fernandez-Sesma and assist Dr. Fernandez-Sesma and her team with grant submissions and scheduling”.
Paula Lopez-Monteagudo PhD (email@example.com) Postdoctoral Fellow
“My main research interest lies in the study of the specific interactions between influenza A virus (IAV) and human myeloid cells. Specifically, I am focused in the role that human dendritic cells (DCs) have triggering the inflammatory response as well as initiating the adaptive response during IAV infection. In relation with that, I am also interested in the study of influenza virus virulence factors and how they can modulate the immune system.”
“My major area of interest is to understand the earliest events that occur when flaviviruses interact with human immune cells, and trying to understand the mechanistic details by which flaviviruses modulate human immune responses. We are also working to develop a novel (improved) mouse model for immunological evaluation of flavivirus infection”.
