The lab will lead a DARPA funded ($5M+) project to understand the functional organization of influenza virus and develop novel evolution-proof gene therapeutics. Read the news release here.
We will develop and integrate a series of technical and conceptual breakthroughs to make fundamental discoveries about how viral population ecology at the cellular, organismal, and between-host levels influences viral evolution, transmission, and pathogenicity.
Our lab will collaborate with the Koelle lab at Duke on theory development and interpretation of data collected by experimental collaborators. We are looking for motivated post-doc researchers to join in this interdisciplinary team! Click here to see details of the post-doc positions.
