Our long-term goal is identification and characterization of the interactions of viruses with their host cells on multiple levels. We use advanced molecular biology, virology and imaging techniques. Our current model systems include Hepatitis D (HDV), Ebola and Dengue viruses. Infection with any of these viruses could eventually be lethal. These viruses affect the lives of millions of individuals worldwide.
