Group leader:Xinwen Chen

   Research in the group focuses on several different aspects of molecular virology, viral pathogenesis and vaccine development. The group studies hepatitis viruses (such as HBV and HCV) and baculovirus. Currently, the research projects are on the genetic diversity and the genetic bases of clinical outcome of Hepatitis virus’s infection. Several systems are being utilized in the laboratory to investigate the interaction between the virus and its host. Our laboratory is also interested in the investigation of immunotherapeutic and prophylactic vaccines, and to that end we are exploring opportunities to develop and use baculovirus vectors for gene expression and gene delivery applications in vitro and in vivo.
