What if we could understand why oral infections with some viruses are cleared in insects, while injection with the same viruses causes lethal infections? What if maintenance of epithelial homeostasis plays an antiviral role in insects? What if molecular and physiological events occurring during oral infection prime immune memory and define the outcome of infection?”
