Dr. Diel’s research focuses the molecular mechanisms underlying virus-host interactions and more specifically on the mechanisms underlying viral immune evasion that contribute to virus virulence and disease pathogenesis. My goal in studying virus-host interactions is to translate the fundamental knowledge generated with this research into improved vaccines and/or vaccine vectors for disease prevention and control.
