We have open positions for a lab research analyst, a research technician, and a post-doctoral fellow who are interested in defining the mechanisms of how influenza viruses cause disease. Check out the position descriptions at the links below and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Our newest paper is now online! In this collaborative work with the Cherry lab, we show that DNA mismatch repair is critical for club cells in the lung to be able to survive direct influenza A virus infection. Check it out at this link!
And here’s some press about the paper:
Griffin’s and Al’s co-first author work describing the development of 10-segmented influenza viruses is now available as a pre-print. Check it out to see how these modified viruses can be used as therapeutics to limit the severity of influenza disease.

Our newest paper describing cells that survive influenza B virus infection has been published! Great work Rebekah!

Click the link below to hear the TWiV hosts discussing our approach to prevent egg adaptation of influenza virus vaccine strains!
And we also got a shout-out from the Herald Sun newspaper here in Durham!
Brook’s paper using CRISPR activation technology to screen for proteins that can inhibit influenza virus infection was published online today. It’s open access, so check it out!
On August 2nd we hit the two year mark! To celebrate we did a hike in the North Carolina mountains followed by some beer drinking. Thanks to everyone who has worked in the lab!
