Western Michigan University Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Fellow research position for Investigative Medicine. The lab recently made the exciting discovery that IL-17RA signaling is selectively proviral to gammaherpesviruses by promoting the gammaherpesvirus-driven germinal center response and viral reactivation. The lab utilizes Murine Gammaherpesvirus 68 (MHV68) as a model for human gammaherpesvirus infection with the aim to uncover and study host mechanisms which regulate or promote gammaherpesvirus-driven germinal center response, viral replication, reactivation, latency, and tumorigenesis. Current work focuses on defining the mechanism by which IL-17RA signaling promotes gammaherpesvirus infection. Future work will expand to understand the significance of naturally induced IL-17A and its’ impact on chronic gammaherpesvirus infection and gammaherpesvirus induced-lymphomagenesis. The role of IL-17RA signaling in other viral infections will also be examined. Other projects in the lab will work to identify additional host factors which the viruses may usurp for its’ benefit or which work to restrict viral infection.
