Talk Overview

Professor Griebel’s research activity currently spans a broad range of vaccine work, basic immunology, and the microbiome. Much of this work is coming together in the development of vaccines targeting pathogens that are both commensals and opportunistic. Recent research indicates this may require novel vaccine approaches to minimize inflammation and damage at mucosal surfaces.
