About the Harris Research Program

 

Professor Eva Harris 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 diseases in humans.

Our program investigates viral and host factors that modulate disease severity and immune correlates of protection and pathogenesis, using in vitro approaches, animal models, and research involving human populations.
