Abstract

The immune system protects us against a variety of viruses. But sometimes viruses are able to enter the cell in an unusual way and to survive. In this project it is studied how these pathogenic viruses enter the cell and how they can escape control by the immune system.

Abstract (NL)

Het afweersysteem beschermt ons tegen allerlei virussen. Soms weten virussen op ongebruikelijke wijze de cel binnen te dringen en te overleven. Dit onderzoek bestudeert hoe deze ziekmakende virussen de cel binnenkomen en kunnen ontsnappen aan de controle van het afweersysteem.
