Maxim C-J. Cheeran received his Veterinary training (DVM) in India and his PhD from the University of Minnesota. His primary research focuses on studying neuroimmune responses against cytomegalovirus brain infection. His studies utilize a murine model of CMV brain infection to investigate the role of peripheral immune cells in controlling virus dissemination in the CNS . His other research interests include understanding the cellular mechanisms by which viruses and immune mediators alter neurogenesis within the CNS. He is actively involved in developing both in vitro and in vivo models to study modulation of neural stem cell function during viral infections. The ultimate goal of these studies is to develop novel therapies for viral encephalitis.
'Wisc-e-sota', the 1st Joint UMN-UW Virology Training Grant Symposium will be held on Friday, Sepbember 20th, 2013 at the Uniiversity of Wisconsin-La Crosse, Cartwright Center. This is the inaugural collaborative symposium of the NIH T32-supported virology training programs at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. Talks and poster sessions will be presented by students, postdocs and faculty.
The 2013 IMV Symposium was held in May, 2013 and featured Vincent Racaniello as the Keynote Speaker as well as the recording of an episode of 'This Week in Virology'. Pictures from the IMV Symposium can be found on the IMV Facebook page and a videotape of the TWiV podcast can be viewed at www.twiv.tv
