    Academic Background

    PhD, 1972, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

    Dr. Ray Welsh

    Viral Immunology and pathogenesis

    The focus of our research is on analyzing basic mechanisms of viral immunology and immunopathology. To do this, we study mouse model infections with a variety of viruses, including lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus, murine cytomegalovirus (MCMV), vaccinia virus, Pichinde virus, mouse hepatitis virus, herpes simplex virus, polyomavirus, Sindbis virus, and others. Our laboratory has demonstrated that natural killer cells become activated during viral infections and contribute to natural resistance to viruses, though they sometimes can act antagonistically by interfering with anti-viral T cell responses. We identified a receptor on NK cells that enables them to control MCMV infection. We also examine the dynamics of CD8 T cell activation, death by apoptosis, and memory in viral infections. A major area of research defined by our lab is on heterologous immunity, whereby the T and B cell immune response elicited by one virus may alter the pathogenesis of disease initiated by a second unrelated virus. This is sometimes mediated by T cells cross-reactive between unrelated viruses. We have also shown that virus-specific T cells often cross-react with allogeneic tissue, and we are studying the role of those cross-reactive T cells in allograft rejection.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
