Lecture of research work on Swine influenza

Next 16th July, Tufária Mussá (PhD student of the CReSA) will carry out the lecture and defense of the research work entitled “In vitro study of Swine Influenza Virus (H3N2) and TLR agonists interaction with porcine bone marrow derived dendritic cells”, directed by Dr. Maria Montoya.

The project called “New vaccine and immunomodulatory strategies based on porcine dendritic cells stimulation using influenza virus infection model” pretends to study the immunomodulatory role of porcine dendritic cell (DCs) and use this knowledge for the rational development of new and improved vaccines.

The porcine influenza virus is a relevant respiratory disease in swine, which has not been fully considered in some circumstances in comparison with other porcine respiratory pathogens. Porcine influenza virus could infect humans and, more importantly, swine could act as an intermediate reservoir for avian influenza to colonize humans. The fact the porcine influenza is considered a zoonosis illustrates its global relevance and the need for efficient tools to control this disease. 

The research work “In vitro study of Swine Influenza Virus (H3N2) and TLR agonists interaction with porcine bone marrow derived dendritic cells” (by Tufária Mussá) is a part of this project.

The lecture and defence will be carried out next 16th July, 10:00h, Aula J205, Facultat de Biociències, UAB (Aulari Central).
