Respiratory viruses unmasked: exploring their neurotropic potential
Respiratory viruses, and especially influenza A virus and enterovirus D68, can cause diseases of the central nervous system but the mechanism is largely unknown. The proposed studies will unravel how respiratory viruses enter and causes damage in the nervous system, identify important viral factors and optimize diagnostics.
This study will unravel the importance and pathogenesis of central nervous diseases caused by respiratory infections, which has been neglected for too long.
