Dr. Stephen Stray's Research

My laboratory has two major interests: evolution and intracellular assembly of viruses, using influenza virus as a model. We are also interested in understanding how changing structural and biophysical properties of HA and NA epitopes may confer selective advantage in the presence of antibodies. I study these interactions both in tissue culture and using purified proteins in vitro. These interactions between may provide an important target for antiviral drugs.”
