Emerging viruses:
Preparedness and response for viral outbreaks and epidemics

Preparedness and response to outbreaks with data science, fundamental virology and genomics

What we do

Our lab works on discovering and characterizing potential new emerging viruses and investigates the transmission, evolution, and virus-host interactions caused by emerging viruses. We combine genomics, data analytics, and experimental virology to provide knowledge and tools to anticipate and prepare for viral outbreaks and epidemics. We are also committed to training the next generation of researchers working on emerging viruses
