Portrait of Gayatri Sanku, MPH


Within my thesis project, I focus on parasite-viral coinfections. I am interested in characterizing immune responses to common viral infections (cytomegalovirus, respiratory syncytial virus, and SARS-CoV-2) and mechanisms by which filarial helminth co-infection may impact T-cell function and dendritic cell activity.
