The Perlman laboratory investigates respiratory disease in humans and mice caused by pathogenic human coronaviruses. These include the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-CoV and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome-CoV. We also study demyelination caused by a murine coronavirus, mouse hepatitis virus, which serves as an animal model for multiple sclerosis. Our first analysis of the human T cell response in MERS patients was recently published.
