Professional Interests: Dengue virus, human Enterovirus 71 and Chikungunya viruses are used as the viral models to decipher the interplay of essential host and viral factors required for the replication of these medically important RNA viruses. Knowledge gained from these investigations will facilitate formulation of effective vaccine or therapeutic intervention against these viral infections and possibly other pathogenic positive-strand RNA viruses. Bio-imaging platform technologies are also been developed for imaging of virus-host interactions as well as high content screening.
