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.
Enclosed is a great document on Influenza A virus biology including Dr Peiris and other International collaborators. See also the following link for the paper of the year 2006 published with our collaborator Dr Kao.
