Areas of collaboration interestDevelopment of SARS-CoV-2 antibody serological tests; Development of SARS-CoV-2 antibodies; Investigating the mechanisms of SARS-CoV-2 actions on host cell signalling systems.
Our research is focused on the mapping and tracking of cell signalling systems in response to normal and pathological conditions. Little is known about how SARS-CoV-2 virus affects host cell signal transduction systems to replicate and evade the immune system. Our lab has developed antibody microarrays that track hundreds of cell signalling proteins for their expression and phosphorylation with access to over 2500 antibodies in-house. We can help collaborators evaluate how corona virus may act in animal and cell culture models with these viruses.
