DESCRIPTION OF THE OFFER
RNA viruses cause tremendous mortality and morbidity worldwide, and present the majority of emerging viral pathogens. Despite their importance, few antivirals and vaccines are available to combat RNA virus infections. Our group studies the biology of RNA viruses with the hope of understanding fundamental aspects of RNA viruses that can be used to treat RNA virus infections. To achieve this, we use an integrative approach that combines molecular biology, biochemistry, cell culture and bioinformatics to study relevant human virus models. We have several projects ongoing, and these are always evolving, so students interested in virology, virus-host interactions, or experimental evolution should contact email@example.com to discuss possible projects.
