Dr. Juliet Morrison is an Assistant Professor at the University of California Riverside. Her research combines immunological and virological methods with computational analysis to address questions at the host-pathogen interface. A major interest of the Morrison Lab is understanding how emerging and re-emerging viruses antagonize innate immune pathways to promote their replication. They also use virus-encoded interferon antagonists as tools to define previously unknown aspects of interferon signaling regulation. Another interest of Professor Morrison is using tissue deconvolution algorithms and immunological tools to study the dynamics of lung immune cell populations during influenza virus infections, and spleen and liver immune cell populations during dengue virus infections. Her goal is to translate these findings into host-targeted influenza and flavivirus therapeutics.
