Professor of Immunology, University of Connecticut

Dr. Haynes's laboratory is interested in how aging influences immune responses, especially to infectious diseases such as influenza and bacterial pneumonia. They investigate the mechanisms involved in specific age-related changes in the immune system. They are also interested in how these changes influence the generation of protective immunity following infection or vaccination. Their goal is to be able to improve vaccine efficacy for elderly populations.
