    The Leung Lab is focused on developing a mechanistic understanding of host-pathogen interactions that contribute to viral pathogenesis through immune evasion, replication, and spread. We use a multidisciplinary approach to characterize select non-segmented negative sense RNA viruses, including respiratory syncytial virus and Ebola virus, to identify critical targets that can be used as a basis to develop therapeutics or vaccine candidates.


    My goal is to create a supportive and inclusive training environment for a diverse group of individuals and to develop the next generation of scientists. I provide trainees with the opportunities to grow their scientific and professional skills while performing competitive research. Training is tailored to the needs of each individual and is dependent on open and effective communication to achieve their career goals while supporting the overall goals of the research program.
