Microbe Video: Julie Pfeiffer

Last month, we were invited by the European Society of Virology to go to their conference in Lyon, France, and interview some of the researchers that were presenting their work.

In this video, we spoke to Julie Pfeiffer, Associate Professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, who investigates the interaction between gut bacteria and viruses. Julie’s work has shown how this interaction can increase a virus’s infectivity, as this paper in Science describes.

We’ll be uploading more videos from the conference in the coming days, you can see them in this YouTube playlist.
