COVID-19 Research-Ready

My Research Interests: • Virus-host interactions • Stem cell technologies • Intervention of viral infections
My Research Background: My lab studies emerging and re-emerging viruses that pose significant threats to human health. Researchers use molecular biology techniques and tissue culture models, including stem cell-derived 3-dimensional models, to investigate the mechanisms by which significant human pathogens, such as Zika and dengue viruses, disseminate and cause diseases. Our research is supported by grants from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
How I Can Help Collaborators: • Cell culture models for viral infection • Platform to develop rapid serological assay for COVID-19 diagnostics • Small molecule candidate that can potential inhibit SARS-CoV-2 replication • Access to key scientists and labs engaging in COVID-19 research • Knowledge related to various aspects of SARSCoV-2 biology, and RNA viruses in general
How Collaborators Can Help Me: We are developing, with an existing collaboration with industry partner, a rapid serological test forCOVID-19, we are seeking partners who have clinical samples to help validate the test
