A research opportunity is currently available with the Immunology Laboratory Team in the Immunology and Pathogenesis Branch (IPB), within the Influenza Division (ID), in the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located in Atlanta, Georgia. ID provides the scientific and programmatic foundation and leadership for the diagnosis, prevention, and control of influenza domestically and internationally.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.
The selected participant will receive training in immunology research to provide support for studies focused on assessing the impact of novel host-directed immunomodulatory strategies (anti-infective and anti-inflammatory) using appropriate in vitro and in vivo experimental models of influenza.
