Josephine Thinwa Lab

The Thinwa lab studies the interface between the brain, viral infections, and mechanisms of host antiviral defense.

We use a variety of techniques to study these interactions, including animal models of viral infection, in vitro culture systems, and advanced imaging technologies to visualize viral replication and immune response in the brain.
