Research in our department focuses on several viruses that target immune and respiratory regions, as well as prions that target the central nervous system. We seek to understand the mechanisms by which these pathogens replicate and induce pathogenesis, and to apply our understanding to the development of methods to control these agents, remove them from blood products, and diagnosis their infection rapidly. Major topics includes : Infections to the immune system, Infections to the respiratory system, Blood-borne infections, Rapid diagnosis kits.
