Read article - David Leib, chair and a professor of microbiology and immunology, is featured in an article about his Geisel School of Medicine study in collaboration with Thayer School of Engineering into the role of antibodies in fighting herpes simplex virus infections. "Despite three decades of trying, the scientific community has been unable to develop an effective vaccine against herpes, and I think the main issue has been that we haven’t fully understood what we need, in terms of antibodies and their specific functions, to protect against this disease," Leib said.
