Abstract

Viral gastroenteritis poses an enormous burden in public health and is an emerging problem due to the acute nature of the infection process. We aim to understand how our bodies react to infection with Noroviruses, in particular how our immune system is triggered and unfortunately avoided during an infectious episode. We also aim to determine how Noroviruses utilized host components and pathways to facilitate infection in the body.
