Research interests

Influenza viruses are a major threat to human health causing annual epidemics and occasional pandemics. Our goal is to identify risk factors associated with severe disease. Specifically we are interested in discovering novel virus and host proteins that contribute to severe infections. This important information will be used to develop novel antiviral therapies targeting these proteins to prevent disease following influenza virus infection.
