Children’s Research Institute Seminar Series “Developing a Pipeline for the Discovery of Anti-Enterovirus Cross-Reactive Monoclonal Antibodies”

April 9 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Dr. Timothy Thoner is a Postdoctoral Research Associate working in the Department of Pediatrics, Division of Infectious Diseases under the supervision of Matthew Vogt, MD, PhD. He is a PhD scientist who studies viruses that primarily cause disease in pediatric populations. Prior to arriving at UNC, his work addressed fundamental questions underlying the ways in which viruses balance the need to replicate efficiently within hosts while maintaining a high degree of genetic diversity. In his current role, he has developed methods that facilitate high-throughput discovery of monoclonal antibodies specific to enteroviruses, which are common childhood viral infections and can cause a broad range of mild to severe disease in infants and young children. Understanding the mechanism of monoclonal antibody binding to these viruses will assist in future enterovirus vaccine design and may identify monoclonal antibodies that prove to be useful in preventing or treating enterovirus infection.
