Viral Immunity Discovery Could Improve Vaccine Design

Walter and Eliza Hall Institute researchers Dr Joanna Groom (R) and Ms Amania Sheikh (L) have led research identifying a molecular switch that impacts immune responses to viral infections, and whether or not protective antibodies are produced. Their findings could lead to better strategies to develop vaccines for previously hard-to-prevent viruses. Credit: Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, Australia.
