RESEARCH INTERESTS

My group is interested in developing new therapies for the treatment of virus infections. We study the bodies immune system and how it tries to deal with invading viruses. We are increasingly focused on understanding the 'species barrier'. That is, how viruses cause disease in certain species and not others. By comprehending the molecular basis for the species barrier, we contend that more effective therapies against virus infection can be created.
