The human body has a number of innate responses to infection, including COVID-19, that include heating the affected part of the body, or cooling it down. Yale School of Medicine researchers are looking hard at the causes behind both.

During a 1989 lecture at the Cold Spring Harbor Symposium on Quantitative Biology, Yale School of Medicine professor Charles Janeway, MD, hypothesized the existence of an innate immune system and special receptors on immune cells (currently known as toll-like receptors) that trigger the body's response to infection. Janeway's research later confirmed his insights, providing the foundation of future endeavors exploring the intricacies of the human immune response. New discoveries continue to reveal an exquisitely tuned immune system in which inflammatory responses and healing are initiated and regulated by known and unknown mechanisms.
