EVENT DESCRIPTION  
 
Event Type:  Seminar (This is an NIH Science event)
 
Title:  Nihal Altan-Bonnet, Ph.D., NHLBI, Vesicular transmission of viral populations: strength in numbers
 
Description:  Using interdisciplinary approaches from cell biology to virology to immunology, we investigate the strategies exploited by viruses to successfully transmit themselves among hosts. We recently discovered a novel form of viral transmission in which viruses are transmitted among hosts, not as single infectious units, but as populations of infectious units clustered inside vesicles. We have found this type of en masse transmission to be widespread in nature, taking place both within as well as between hosts, resulting in enhanced viral infectivity, suppression of host immune responses and overall greater virulence.
