Dr. Virgin, is the Mallinckrodt Professor and Head of Pathology and Immunology at Washington University School of Medicine. His laboratory studies the host/pathogen/symbiote interface paying particular attention to mechanisms that operate in vivo. His lab discovered the first murine norovirus, cultured noroviruses for the first time, has identified the mechanisms of action of viral virulence factors and anti-viral immunity, and demonstrated that herpesviruses can confer mutualistic symbiotic advantages to their hosts by stimulating innate immune responses. The laboratory has contributed to defining the mammalian virome and the role of the virome in health and disease.
