Host-virus interaction of Influenza and Paramyxoviruses

The main focus of our research is to reveal molecular mechanism of parainfluenza and influenza virus infection, replication, and assembly and host-virus interactions. We analyze structures and functions of viral proteins as well as interactions between viral and cellular proteins to reveal the mechanism of virus growth and to identify the factors that restrict host range of the viruses. Our study will unveil the process of viral replication and assembly, which are essential for developing antiviral agents.
