The Laboratory of Viral Diseases carries out investigations on the molecular biology of viruses, the interactions of viruses with host cells, the pathogenesis of viral diseases, and host defense mechanisms. The studies are designed to increase fundamental knowledge as well as to facilitate the development of new approaches to the prevention and treatment of disease. The laboratory is well equipped with an electron microscope, confocal microscopes, FACS machines, DNA sequencers, PCR machines, ultracentrifuges, and other standard items. The members of the laboratory are interactive and hold weekly seminars in which current research is presented and discussed.
