Vlasova Lab

v

The Vlasova lab at OSU CFAH, led by Anastasia Vlasova, DVM, PhD, focuses on the pathogenesis, epidemiology and immunity to enteric, emerging and zoonotic viruses with the emphasis on coronaviruses (CoVs) and rotaviruses (RVs)The lab conducts their research to understand the role of pre-existing antibodies against human CoVs associated with common colds in SARS-CoV-2 pathogenesis (STOP-COVID program). Such information is critical for development of accurate diagnostic tools, control measures, understanding mechanisms of interspecies transmission/evolution of viral pathogens, and for enhancement of the immune responses at the mucosal interphase. Overall, their research contributes to both basic science and translational biomedical research.
