We investigate the intracellular replication of Flaviviruses, Noroviruses and now Coronaviruses, to understand how replication influences cellular functions and immune dysfunction. In particular the influences viral replication imparts on metabolic and stress pathways that ultimately lead to immune regulation and dysfunction. Our research has additionally endeavoured to reveal antivirals active against these viruses and the development of vaccine approaches to prevent disease.
