Research Interest

Many viruses are closely related to human diseases and public health. To illustrate the the molecular mechanisms of virus infection and pathogenesis, as well as providing usefull imformation for novel antiviral therapeutics, I would like to focus on the physiological function and structure basis of the proteins encoded by viruses and the interactions between viral and cellular proteins.
