Emerging Infectious Diseases and Zika Virus Outbreak in Brazil.

Jenner K. Pimenta dos Reis, PhD

Professor Titular (Full Professor)
RetroLab, Department of Preventive Veterinary Medicine
College of Veterinary Medicine
Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil

Dr. Jenner received his B.A. in Biomedicine from Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG), Brazil in 1989, his M.S. in Microbiology with emphasis in Virology in 1993 and his Ph.D. in Animal Science with emphasis in viral infectious diseases and Preventive Veterinary Medicine from the same institution in 1997. Dr. Jenner then performed his postdoctoral training with Dr. Ronald Montelaro at the University of Pittsburgh in 2001 and with Dr. Charles Issel at the University of Kentucky where he studied cellular and humoral immune response of horses and donkeys for EIAV. Dr. Jenner joined the faculty of the Department of Preventive Veterinary Medicine at UFMG in 1997 as a Research Assistant Professor. He currently holds the rank of Full Professor of Virology, at UFMG, Brazil.

Dr. Jenner coordinates the Laboratory of Retroviruses (RetroLab) which conducts research programs based on epidemiological, immunological and molecular studies for retroviruses. One aspect of the RetroLab research is the development of novel serological and molecular assays for retroviruses, and the design of engineered antigens for effective diagnostic tests. The diseases currently under investigation in RetroLab are Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), Enzootic Bovine Leucosis (EBL), Bovine Immunodeficiency Virus (BIV), Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV) and Caprine Arthritis-Encephalitis (CAE).

"Old Age is No Place for Sissies"*: Immune Responses Coping with Chronic Oral Infections at the Mucosal Surface!

*Quote from Bette Davis

Jeffrey Ebersole, PhD

Alvin L. Morris Professor of Oral Health Research
Associate Dean for Research & Graduate Studies
College of Dentistry
University of Kentucky

Photo of Dr. Ebersore

Dr. Ebersole’s laboratory focuses its research efforts on the immunobiology of oral infections.  The research emphasizes in vitro, and in vivo studies of host-pathogen interactions using animal and human models of oral disease(s), including a range of oral-systemic disease studies and as part of a major NIDCR effort to identify and validate the potential for point-of-care salivary biomarkers as diagnostic tools for oral and systemic diseases.  As Director of the Center for Oral Health Research, Dr. Ebersole has had oversight for the UK College of Dentistry Outreach and Engagement Program including the operation of multiple mobile dental vans and both Head Start and elementary school-based dental service and research programs through the Kentucky Oral Health Network (KOHN).  The goal of these programs has transitioned from simply providing safety-net dental services for the state, to an emphasis on developing, implementing, and assessing new models to improve oral health in rural communities and interfere with the economic and societal ravages of these oral infections.

Bent Out of SHAPE:  The Role of Coding and Non-Coding Determinants in Alphavirus Pathogenesis.

Mark T. Heise, PhD

Professor, Department of Genetics and
Department of Microbiology and Immunology
The University of North Carolina
Chapel Hill, NC

photo of Dr. Heise

Dr. Heise received his B.A. in Biology from St. Olaf College in 1991 and his Ph.D. in Immunology from Washington University in St. Louis in 1996, where he trained with Dr. Herbert “Skip” Virgin IV.  Dr. Heise then performed his postdoctoral training with Dr. Robert Johnston at the University of North Carolina from 1997 to 2000 where he studied molecular virology and viral pathogenesis.  Dr. Heise joined the faculty of the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at UNC in 2000 as a Research Assistant Professor and then took a primary appointment within the Department of Genetics, with a joint appointment within the Department of Microbiology and Immunology, in 2003.  He currently holds the rank of Professor of Genetics, and Microbiology and Immunology at UNC.

Dr. Heise leads a research program at UNC that is focused on understanding how viral and host genetic variation influence virus-induced disease processes.  Dr. Heise’s research group has identified and characterized a number of important viral virulence determinants involved in host immune evasion and the promotion of virus-induced disease.  They have also identified key host pathways that play either protective or pathologic roles in virus-induced disease processes.  Since 2008, Dr. Heise has been involved in the Complex Trait Consortium, and in collaboration with Dr. Ralph Baric in the Department of Epidemiology and Drs. Fernando Pardo Manuel de Villena, Martin Ferris, and William Valdar in the Department of Genetics, the Heise lab has been pioneering the use of the Collaborative Cross mouse genetic reference population as system for identifying and studying polymorphic host genes associated with variation in susceptibility to virus-induced disease.
