Our laboratory is focused on understanding how to combat viral infections.

Viruses are part of day-to-day encounters that our immune system needs to deal with. How the immune system “sees”, recognises and eliminates viral infection is not fully understood.

Indeed, viruses are able to mutate in order to escape the immune system surveillance. If we were to develop better vaccine and drugs, it is essential to understand the mechanism of viral recognition and viral escape prior to this.

Our lab combines both the cellular and structural approaches to understand the immune system action when face with a viral infection.
