Talk title:  Immune imprinting of dengue and Zika viruses: immunological, epidemiological, and clinical consequences

Presenter: Eva Harris, Professor and Chair of the Division of Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, School of Public Health; Professor, Division of Immunology and Molecular Medicine, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, Berkeley

Dr. Eva Harris is Professor and Chair of the Division of Infectious Diseases and Vaccinology, Director of the Center for Global Public Health, and Chair of the Infectious Diseases and Immunity PhD Program in the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley. She has developed a multidisciplinary approach to study the molecular virology, pathogenesis, immunology, epidemiology, clinical aspects and control of dengue, Zika and chikungunya, the most prevalent mosquito-borne viral diseases in humans. Her work addresses immune correlates of protection and pathogenesis and viral and host factors that modulate disease severity, using in vitro approaches, animal models, and research involving human populations.

About the series: Each spring, CCDD hosts an annual seminar series featuring talks from experts on the latest research in infectious disease epidemiology and modeling. The ID Epi Seminar Series aims to bring in speakers from various disciplines within infectious disease epidemiology, broadly defined to include the population biology of pathogens and other allied topics. Seminars will be held on Thursdays, unless otherwise noted, at 1pm ET between February 2nd and May 9th.
