Brief description I am a virologist carrying out research to determine the mechanisms underlying rotavirus cellular tropism and the pathogenesis of rotavirus disease. Rotavirus is the major cause of infantile gastroenteritis worldwide. I am combining the expertise of my group in rotavirus biology with the power of inter-disciplinary collaborations in the areas of sugar chemistry, cell biology, structural biology and diabetes to expand understanding in these areas. Novel treatments and improvements in rotavirus vaccines are the long term goal of our research.
