Impact of pulmonary Mouse Hepatitis Virus 1 (MHV-1) infection on the T cell compartment

The Badovinac lab studies both CD8 T cell responses in infections/immunizations and immune responses in septic hosts. My current research focus is on evaluating corticosterone responses during sepsis and their downstream role in modulating disease. Also, I am using murine hepatitis virus (MHV-1) to define the extent to which murine corona virus infection of susceptible mouse strains evokes sepsis-like disease.
