Talk title: Immune interactions between dengue and Zika viruses and protection versus enhancement of disease.
Presenter: Dr. Leah Katzelnick, Stadtman Tenure-Track Investigator, Viral Epidemiology and Immunity Unit, Laboratory of Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health.
Dr. Katzelnick pursued a Ph.D. studying antigenic variation among dengue viruses at the University of Cambridge and the National Institutes of Health as an NIH OxCam Scholar and Gates Cambridge Scholar. After receiving her Ph.D. in 2016, she conducted her postdoctoral work at the University of California, Berkeley and University of Florida on determinants of dengue and Zika disease, spending a year in Ecuador and Nicaragua to work closely with research teams conducting longitudinal cohort studies. In September of 2020, Leah became an Earl Stadtman tenure-track investigator and NIH Distinguished Scholar in the Laboratory of Infectious Diseases in NIAID. She is Chief of the new Viral Epidemiology and Immunity Unit.
About the series: Each spring, the Center for Communicable Disease Dynamics 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 at 1pm ET between February 11th and May 6th with the exception of March 18th. Recordings of presentations will be made publicly available each week.
