Designing new antiviral strategies requires a deep understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in the viral replication.
My research focuses on the Non-Structural protein NS1 of influenza viruses, a key actor that allows the virus to thwart the antiviral defences of the host cell.
Specifically, my activity is devoted to explore the structure-function relationships of NS1:
> in vitro: RNA-binding, transient expression of NS1;
> in vivo: genetically-engineered viruses, chicken model of influenza virus infection.
