My research projects are to define the replication machinery of murine noroviruses in relationship to permissive host cell requirements and to develop robust reverse genetics tools for human noroviruses that allow recovery of infectious virus. My research interests are molecular biology and epidemiology for diarrheal, respiratory and rash-associated viruses.
