Francois has two collaborators at the University of Hong Kong: Dr Richard Kao and Dr Malik Peiris.
Dr Peiris is receiving financial support for his postdoctoral fellow working on a influenza A project funded by Francois’ CIHR team grant on Functional Infectomics of influenza A virus.
Dr. Kao is working with Francois’ lab member, Meera Raj (PhD candidate) on the SARS-CoV biology. Francois has already published with Richard on SARS-CoV in the journal Biol Chem: paper of the Year in 2006. Other projects are in progress on the SARS-coV.
