Meet the people behind today’s virology headlines. People just like you working to understand viruses and how they affect you. Host: Larissa Thackray, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Infectious Diseases
We talk with Dr. Marc Johnson, Professor of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Missouri School of Medicine, and Mitchell (Mitch) Ramuta, a graduate student in the O'Connor laboratory at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, about the potential applications of their work using wastewater and air surveillance for SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses.
We talk with Dr. Vishwanatha (Vishi) Reddy, a senior postdoctoral fellow in the Broadbent lab at the Pirbright Institute, who studies immunosuppressive avian viruses.
We talk with Madison Gray, a first-year graduate student at the University of Texas Medical Branch, who is using bioinformatics and AI to discover new therapeutics for pathogenic viruses.
We talk with William Rodriguez, a graduate student in the Muller lab at the University of Massachusetts - Amherst, who studies host transcripts that escape RNA decay mediated by herpes virus infection.
We talk with Patrick Creisher, a graduate student in the Klein lab at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, who studies the outcome of respiratory virus infection during pregnancy.
We talk with Dr. Abdullah Algaissi, an assistant professor of virology at the Medical Research Center at Jazan University, who studies emerging coronaviruses such as MERS and SARS-CoV-2.
We talk with Dr. Tamanash Battacharya, a postdoctoral fellow in the Malik lab at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, who studies the viral evolution of arboviruses.
We talk with Frank Charlton, a graduate student in the Barr lab at University of Leeds, who studies the biochemical cues need for Bunyavirus entry.
We talk with Dr. Izabela Rezende, a postdoctoral researcher in the LaBeaud lab at Stanford University School of Medicine, who studies risk factors associated with severe outcome following yellow fever virus infection.
We talk with Dr. Maggie Bartlett, a a postdoctoral fellow in the Griffin lab at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, who is studying immune control of viruses and viral persistence.
We talk with Debarpan Dhar, a graduate student in the Miller lab at Iowa State University, who studies packaging and replication of mammalian orthoreoviruses.
We talk with Dr. Marlonni Maurastoni, a postdoctoral researcher in the Whitfield lab at North Carolina State University, who is working to understand transmission of plant viruses.
We talk with Hannah Murphy, a graduate student in the Liang and Ly lab at the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine, who studies arenaviruses and SARS-CoV-2.
We talk with Dr. Joaquín Caceres, an Assistant Research Scientist at University of Georgia, who designs more effective live attenuated influenza vaccines.
We talk with Dr. Aurelien Chuard, a postdoctoral researcher in the Altindis lab at Boston College, who studies insulin-like peptides encoded by large double-stranded DNA viruses in the Iridoviridae family.
We talk with Dr. Joanna Sztuba-Solinska, an assistant professor at Auburn University, who is studying structure, function, and regulation of viral RNAs.
We talk with Dr. John Dzimianski, a postdoctoral associate in the Dubois lab at the University of California Santa Cruz, who uses structural biology to study epitopes on the hemagglutinin glycoprotein of diverse influenza viruses in order to predict vaccine efficacy.
We talk with Alberto Lopez-Munoz, a a postdoctoral fellow in the Yewdell lab at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who studies immunomodulation by SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein.
We talk with Amy Davis, a graduate student in the Schultz-Cherry lab at St Jude Children's Research Hospital, who studies astrovirus infection of the central nervous system.
We talk with Grant Butschek, a graduate student in the Pekosz lab at Johns Hopkins University, who is studying how temperature differences in the upper and lower respiratory tract alter virus infection.
