Biology Seminar: Tim Nice, "It takes guts: virus and host determinants of intestinal infection"

Dr. Tim Nice, Oregon Health & Science University, studies the biology of the intestinal innate immune cells and cytokines – how they promote intestinal health and resistance to infection. He uses the mouse model of persistent norovirus infection and models of intestinal disease to understand how immune pathways function and how they become dysfunctional in disease states.

"It takes guts: virus and host determinants of intestinal infection"

Abstract: The overall goal of research in the Nice Lab is to expand our understanding of host-microbe interactions in the intestine. More specifically, we use genetically tractable animal models of enteric virus infection to discover genetic determinants and their roles in infection or immunity. Additionally, we are interested in how the antiviral responses of intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) are uniquely tailored to protect the epithelial barrier and how dis-regulation of these responses could promote intestinal disease.
