Elene Clemens

Matriculated: 2015

Graduate Program: Microbiology and Immunology


BS, 2013, Davidson College, Davidson, NC

For my first summer rotation I am looking at improving the availability of viral (particularly flu) vaccines that are both safe and functional for neonates, as they are particularly susceptible to respiratory tract infections. To do this I am examining the effect of cross-linking Toll-like receptor agonists to viral particles in order to produce a more robust adaptive immune response.
