Research ActivitiesWe 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.
