Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Postdoc Position

PostDoctoral positions (3 years) are available in February, 2015 to study viral pathogenesis and immunology of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infection.

The specific projects are: (1) To determine if the absence of a robust CTL response in corneas and trigeminal ganglia of infected mice is due to down-regulation of costimulatory signals by HSV-1 infection and inclusion of these molecules with a cocktail of HSV-1 glycoproteins improve vaccine efficacy against ocular HSV-1 infection. (2) To determine if macrophage stimulation will enhance TH1/TC1 responses in the eye and leads to more rapid clearance of virus during primary ocular HSV-1 infection as well as when they are used as a therapeutic vaccine.
