Sara Cherry - Keynote speakers NVVI Annual Meeting 2017
Keynote lecture 'Using genetic approaches to study antiviral immunity'

Sara Cherry is a Professor of Microbiology, Scientific Director of the High-throughput Screening Core and Director of Chemogenomic Discovery at the University of Pennsylvania.

She applies high-throughput screening technology to discover mechanisms by which diverse viral pathogens hijack cellular machinery while evading defenses. By comparing and contrasting host factor dependencies across diverse viruses and disparate hosts, her lab has revealed novel biological insights into immune defense, and illuminated the unusual biology of viral organisms largely focusing on vector-borne viruses. Her lab continues to explore the interface of viruses, including globally important emerging pathogens, with hosts to discover new therapeutic targets.
