In this interview we speak to Daniella Lefteri about her research on modulating arbovirus infection by targeting mosquito saliva, and what avenues this could present for new antiviral treatments.

New research investigating possible interactions between Epstein–Barr virus and neurological diseases has successfully infected neuronal-like cells in vitro, with the hope to use these as a model for studying this virus in the future.
Innate lymphoid cells, a relatively newly discovered class of immune cells, play a pivotal role in controlling early tuberculosis infection, according to new research.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa uses a phage to trick the host’s immune system into ignoring it, in turn suppressing bacterial clearance from infected wounds, according to new research.
Microbiome metabolites have been discovered to enhance colon injury in human EHEC infections in a human–mouse comparative study, accounting for species-specific differences in infection tolerance.
A new study has suggested that sleep causes a dip in Gαs-coupled receptor agonists, in turn improving T cell integrin activation – a process T cells use to target viral cells.
New research has provided evidence that basophils might play an important role in the immune response to bacterial infections, preventing the development of sepsis.
New research has suggested that vaccinia viruses trick infected host cells into activating their cell movement mechanism, rapidly spreading the virus.
Genomics is increasingly being adopted into both research and clinical settings. Here, we speak to Dyann Wirth about the use of genomics in the field of malaria, from what it can uncover about the parasite to the hurdles that need to be overcome moving towards elimination.
