The goal of the Laboratory of Structural Virology (LSV) is to provide insights into viral latency and the biological processes that modulate the effects on human health. To accomplish this, we investigate the following topics:

  • The relationship between the atomic level structures of macromolecules and their biochemical properties
  • The abilities of viral macromolecules to interact with substrates and other molecules, including those that impact on human health.


The research performed by our laboratory requires an integrated approach wherein techniques such as X-ray crystallography, protein interaction analysis, including Isothermal Titration Calorimetry are used to understand the components of viral modulation.
