Research Activities

We are working to understand how highly-pathogenic viruses such as Hendra virus replicate inside cells - providing information about virus biology and novel approaches to combat these viruses.

We are also researching how measuring the host response to virus infection - such as the production of host-encoded microRNAs provides information that can support the rapid diagnosis of viral diseases.

Techniques/Expertise

Molecular biology
RNA interference
small RNA biology
Virology
Immunology
Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)

Collaborations

Mark Tompkins and Ralph Tripp - University of Georgia
Kaylene Simpson - Victorian Centre for Functional Genomics
Dr John Stambas
Dr Michael Gantier
Dr Seth Masters

Disease Models

We coordinate our studies to access samples from models of both animal (such as horses and bats) and human (mouse and ferrets) models of viral diseases.
