Lamb Center for Pediatric Research
The Lamb Center for Pediatric Research is an interdisciplinary research unit combining interests in infectious diseases, microbiology, and immunology. The Center, established in 1990 through the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. George C. Lamb, Jr., is dedicated to basic research in the molecular pathogenesis of pediatric infectious diseases. Lamb Center investigators study how viruses target distinct tissues in the infected host, enter into host cells, reprogram the cellular environment to allow viral replication, and antagonize host defense mechanisms to cause disease. A current thrust of Lamb Center efforts is to use model viruses as platforms to develop new viral vaccines and virus-based therapeutics. See below to learn more about our investigators.
