Inna G. Ovsyannikova, Ph.D., studies the genetics of innate and adaptive immune responses to viral and bacterial vaccines. Her interests include vaccine-preventable infectious diseases, particularly the application of mass spectrometry to develop peptide-based vaccines against smallpox, measles, influenza and agents of bioterrorism. Additional research examines gene polymorphisms and predictors of vaccine immune response, viral antigen processing and HLA presentation, and new high-dimensional vaccine studies (transcriptomics, proteomics and others).
The goal of these studies is to use vaccinomics to support future vaccine development. This research provides novel scientific approaches and solutions to vaccine nonresponse, develops a basis for new vaccines designed to overcome genetic restrictions, and gives insights into the functional mechanisms of immunity induced by vaccines.
