My lab works on viral RNA polymerases, which are enzymes that replication and transcribe viral genomes. Currently, we focus on the influenza virus RNA polymerase and we use biochemical and single-molecule techniques to study how it works and how it contributes to the virulence of pandemic and highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses.
