The Golde lab’s current focus is development of vaccines for viral infections of livestock that induce a strong cellular immune response to compliment the anti-virus antibody response induced using present vaccine formulations. We use vaccine vectors derived from various viruses including adenovirus and vaccinia virus to redesign the vaccine payload to be delivered in a manner that induces the critical cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) response. This response kills virus infected cells and arrests the spread of virus within the body and between animals.
