My lab focuses on the mechanisms of disease during infection with viruses that cause hemorrhagic illness. We have developed mouse models of severe hemorrhagic disease to study the molecular mechanisms that underlie vascular permeability, hemorrhage, immune-mediated damage, and death. Through our partnership with the Viral Hemorrhagic Fever Consortium, we are translating our findings in mice to disease in humans.
