The role

A postdoctoral researcher position is available in our laboratory, starting Autum 2022, to study the role of virus-specific tissue-resident T-cells (Trm) involved in the control vs. pathogenesis of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) infections in humans. The project will involve detailed analysis of the phenotype, antigen specificity and spatial orientation of HSV-1 reactive CD4 and CD8 Trm cells in trigeminal ganglia (immune control) and corneas (immunepathogenesis) of latently HSV-1-infected individuals.
