University of Colorado Denver; Infectious Diseases

Dr. Janoff’s day job is to treat infectious diseases, and his passion is to prevent them. His research focuses on the development of systemic and mucosal immune responses, particularly antibodies, to provide primary protection against infection, infants, older adults and, more recently, people with Down Syndrome. He has studied mother-to-child transmission of HIV, pneumococcal pneumonia, influenza and, now, COVID-19. His goal is to understand and to teach others about what host factors are important in eliciting natural defense against respiratory infections and the protection provided by vaccines.
